Our community profiles gives an analysis of the population characteristics of our communities, shows how it has changed over time and how they compare to other areas.. The profile presents data from the New Zealand Census of Population and Dwellings in 2013, 2006 and 2001 for our district and smaller areas. This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary covering a wide range of census questions. The profile answers the majority of frequently asked socio-demographic questions and assists Council, the general public, students, community groups, organisations, business and investors to become more informed about the community.
