New Zealand Deprivation Index analysis from 2018 census

The NZDep2018 analysis of census 2018 variables report provides information about Aotearoa’s socioeconomic landscapes using the measurement tool NZDep2018. The report presents data from the 2018 Census as viewed through the lens of NZDep2018.

The uses to which NZDep is put include planning, needs assessment, research, resource allocation and community-based advocacy. We hope that this material provides information that is useful in assisting with these activities.

Census information is provided at the national level, and at the District Health Board (DHB) and Territorial Authority (TA) levels.

The collective DHB and TA table with links is also available in an XL spreadsheet:
NZDep2018 spreadsheet for DHBs and territorial authorities files (excel)

Data source for the analysis

All information in the report is derived from the 2018 Census process. Almost all of the data has been sourced from Stats NZ webpage:
Statistical area 1 dataset for 2018 Census – updated March 2020

The information at the Statistical Area 1 (SA1) level used the associated NZDep2018 (SA1 level version). The data have been summarised to the relevant geographical level in the report (All NZ, DHB and TA). Totals in the report therefore may differ slightly from the actual totals due to the use of random rounded SA1 values in the summations.
