Statistics New Zealand : Plenty of people moving to the Bay

10/21/2020 | 05:55pm EST


Auckland's population grew an estimated 2.2 percent in the June 2020 year, 37,000 more residents than in 2019. The increase in population reflects gains from international migrants (36,700) and natural increase (12,800 more births than deaths), but was partly offset by people moving out of the region to other parts of New Zealand (12,600).

'Auckland's population growth was the largest by number - equivalent to everyone from the Whakatane district moving to Auckland in a year,' Ms Theyers said.

There was population growth across all Auckland local board areas. The fastest-growing areas were Papakura (4.6 percent), Upper Harbour (4.0 percent), and Rodney (3.6 percent).

Territorial authority areas

Stats NZ updates subnational population estimates using three components:

  • migrant arrivals minus migrant departures (net international (or external) migration)
  • in-migration from other areas minus out-migration to other areas of New Zealand (net internal migration)
  • births minus deaths (natural increase).

Subnational population estimates are provisional and will be revised as the migration components are updated.

For the first time, Stats NZ is releasing separate estimates of net internal and net international migration, along with natural increase, for territorial authority and Auckland local board areas.

Subnational migration estimates for territorial authority and Auckland local board areas at 30 June: Data sources and methods has more information on the methodology used.

Among all territorial authority and Auckland local board areas, Selwyn district had the largest net internal migration gain (2,100 people) in the June 2020 year. This accounted for 63 percent of Selwyn's growth, with the balance from net international migration and natural increase.

Christchurch city had a net internal migration loss of 1,900 people.

'It's likely many of the people moving out of Christchurch moved to the neighbouring district of Selwyn, and also to Waimakariri which had a net internal migration gain of 1,100,' Ms Theyers said.

However, Christchurch city still had the largest population increase (7,000) after Auckland, with a net international migration gain of 7,400 people and natural increase of 1,500 people.

'In other words, the lion's share of Christchurch's population growth came from people arriving from overseas, partly offset by some leaving the city for other parts of New Zealand,' Ms Theyers said.

'A similar pattern is seen in other cities such as Auckland and Wellington, and to a lesser extent in Hamilton.'
