Demographic Testimony, Great Barrier Local Board area 2016
The area includes the Great Barrier Island (Aotea), the biggest island off the northern island. The Great Barrier Island is situated just off the Coromandel Peninsula, about 90 km from the centre of Auckland. The Great Barrier Island is rough and beautifully and sparsely inhabited. There is a stream of tourists in summers, and the island offers several types of shelter.
Over 60 percent of Great Barrier Island is publicly owned and managed by the Department of Conservation. Little Barrier Island (Hauturu), one of New Zealand's major off-shore island reservations, also belongs to the area. Here live the most threatened bird populations on every island in the county and more than 400 indigenous plant types.
The population grew by 5 percent between the 2006 and 2013 populations, less than the 8 percent increase in the region during this period. By 2013, the population' s demographic pattern had a higher percentage of inhabitants over 65 than the region's population.
Just 17 percent of the population was repatriated. There were 462 homes on the Great Barrier in 2013. Average domestic incomes were $30,100 - significantly lower than the region's $76,500 average and the smallest in all area. By 2013, 70 percent of homes in the region had the same home they were living in (including 14 percent that they had in a foundation ), as opposed to 61 percent in the region.
Nearly half (44%) of homes were single-person homes, a high percentage in comparison to the 19% regionally-averaged. Just 13 percent of homes were single-parent families with kids, another 8 percent were single mothers. In general, the level of educational attainment of people living nearby was lower than in other administrative districts.
By 2013, a fourth (25%) of all inhabitants 15 years and older had no official education, as against 17% in the region, and 15% had a Bachelor's or higher education, as against 25% in the region. Over a third (34%) of the population over 15 years of age worked full-time and a further 19% part-time.
Out of the workforce, 49 percent were salaried and almost one third (31 percent) self-employed. The Waiheke Local Board area as well as the Great Barrier Local Board area had relatively large shares of self-employed persons. About 40 percent of the workforce were either manager or skilled workers, while 6 percent were machine operator and driver and 18 percent were workers.
In February 2015, 260 people were working at the Great Barrier. The majority were active in hotels and restaurants, the educational system or the retailing industry. Most of the companies were active in the hotels and restaurants industry, followed by the building industry. Between 2010 and 2015, the Great Barrier saw a 9 percent increase in jobs versus 13 percent for the entire area.
Because of the small size of the Great Barrier LAB economies, sectoral changes over the course of the years as described for other LABs are not available. Unless otherwise noted, all figures presented here are from the 2013 Census. The" Econo - Biznes in the communal board" is based on demographic information from Statistics New Zealand.
