How accurate are population estimates and projections?

How accurate are population estimates and projections? An evaluation of Statistics New Zealand population estimates and projections, 1996–2013 evaluates the accuracy of recent national and subnational population estimates and projections. The report focuses on estimates and projections of the total population produced and published since 1996, although earlier projections are included where practicable.

This report is designed to help customers understand the accuracy of Statistics NZ’s population estimates and projections relative to observed populations, the reasons for inaccuracies, and discusses current developments that may improve accuracy.
