The information in this profile is based on the 2001 Census of Population and Dwellings, the 2001 Household Expenditure Survey and the New Zealand Business Demographic Statistics.

All population statistics are for the census usually resident population count and have been randomly rounded to base three to preserve confidentiality.

Percentages have been calculated against complete responses; that is, they exclude cases where no answers were provided and have been calculated on the rounded data so do not always total 100%.
