2013 Census – New Zealand as a village of 100 people

Why is the data in this infographic different to data in other 2013 census products? 

New Zealand as a village of 100 people. 2013 Census infographic.

Why is the data in this infographic different to data in other 2013 census products?

Data presented in this infographic may be different to data in other 2013 Census products. For example, the number of Māori in the village of our infographic is 14, whereas 2013 Census QuickStats about national highlights states 14.9 percent of people in New Zealand are of Māori ethnicity.

In the infographic, we used the total census usually resident population count (‘total count’) to calculate percentages about the villagers. This total count includes all people who have not stated an answer or whose answer was unable to be allocated to a specific category. Using this total count ensures all 100 villagers are represented.

Other census products (including 2013 Census QuickStats about Māori) use percentages calculated from the census usually resident population that excludes people who have not stated an answer or whose answer was unable to be allocated to a specific category – known as 'total stated'.

Why do some sections of the infographic refer to 80 people, not 100?

Some data in the infographic refers to a subset of the total village population. For example, qualifications are counted for the census usually resident population aged 15 years and over – or 80 people in our village. Other census products also use these subsets of the census usually resident population count.
