    Hide details for Urban areasUrban areas
    The department’s non-administrative urban area structure comprises a three-part classification, consisting of main, secondary and minor urban areas which constitute the "urban" population of New Zealand.

    "Urban area" boundaries are defined with the objective of enabling users to make statistical comparisons over time without the need for major adjustments caused by changes in territorial authority boundaries. This classification also enables users to distinguish between the statistical characteristics of the "urban" and "rural" areas of New Zealand.

    Main Urban Areas

    These are very large non-administrative centres which are urban in character and consist of part of a city or parts of cities and/or part of a district or parts of districts. Main urban areas have a minimum population of 30,000.

    Minor Urban Areas

    These are small to medium-sized non-administrative centres which comprise part of a district, are regarded as urban in character and have populations ranging between 1,000 and 9,999.

    Secondary Urban Areas

    These areas are large non-administrative centres which comprise parts of a district or districts regarded as urban in character and have a population ranging between 10,000 and 29,999.
