New Zealand: An Urban/Rural Profile (experimental)

Background

“New Zealand: An Urban/Rural Profile” was produced in 2004 as part of a series of analytical reports based on the 2001 Census. The profile is a snapshot of urban and rural New Zealand in 2001. The project-specific experimental classification developed for this report re-categorises rural areas on the basis of the significance of urban areas as a source of employment. Smaller urban areas are re-categorised according to the proportion of people that work in a main urban area.

“New Zealand: An Urban/Rural Profile” is based on statistics from Statistics NZ and other government agencies, including the 2001, 1996, and 1991 Censuses, the New Zealand Income Survey, the Land Transport Safety Authority’s Travel Survey and the Ministry of Health’s Social Deprivation Index.
