South Island PopulationPopulation of the South Island
Population of the Regional Council areas on the South Island by population year. Inhabitants of all metropolitan areas and countryside centres on the South Island by population year. New Zealand Statistics (web). Local population is calculated by unit of area according to its 2013 definitions; as the population has been approximated by New Zealand statistics, small variations are possible.
What is the whiteest area of New Zealand?
Ninety-five percent of Europeans in the whiteest parts of New Zealand are Europeans. Are you on the South Island? Europeans or others (including "New Zealanders"); Maori; Pacific peoples; Asians; and Mid East/Latin American/African. Humans can check more than one checkbox - for example Maori and Europeans - which can explain why the ethnical composition of a given area can exceed 100 percent.
There is something very much of Europe about South Island - and that has nothing to do with the fact that the South Americans roll their R' s. 9 of the 10 places with the highest percentage of Europeans in their population are in the South - and 5 of them are in Canterbury. Europeans by 22 percent in 2013, a small decrease of 96.
In 1996, the population grew and relocated by 97 percent. Maori make up 7. 8 percent of Waimakariris population - up from 6. 8 percent in 1996 and above statistic for Canterbury. The Tasman (94. 88 percent European), Grey District (94. 53 percent) and Central Otago (94. 32 percent) also have high shares of Europeans, while Canterbury's Hurunui, Waimate, Selwyn and Timaru all reached the top 10.
Twenty-nine percent of the population identified themselves as Maori and overlapped with the 51st group. The following countries identified themselves as Europeans: 2. 41 percent Pasifika, 2. 05 percent Asians and 0. 24 percent MENA. However, Wairoa has a population problem: between 1996 and 2013 its number decreased by almost a fifth.
To increase its population, the Wairoans were looking for individuals of all nationalities. There are also two Bay of plenties with more Maori than Europeans: Opotiki (57. 74 percent vs. 54. 67 percent) and Kawerau (60 percent vs. 53. 83 percent). Auckland is New Zealand's most multi-cultural metropolis for a long time and with population growth - from 1.1 million in 1996 to almost 1.5 million in 2013 - also its nationalities.
Opotiki now just behind Auckland for the bottom share of Europeans (59 percent, down from 73. 21 1996) while its Maori population also dropped slightly in this bout (from 12. 63 percent in 1996 to 11. 37 percent in 2013). Simultaneously, the population of Asia grew from 10.
Forty-four percent to 23. Thirty-seven percent. New Zealand estimates that by 2038 only 43 percent of the population of Auckland will be Europeans, with 34 percent Asians, 18 percent Pasifica and 13 percent Maori. Porirua, just North of Wellington, has the highest share of pasifica (14,550 in 2013, or 27.09 percent of the population), while Queenstown Lakes has the highest share of the Near East/Latin America/Africa group (810 or 2.73 percent of the region's 29,700 inhabitants).
30 years ago, 900 persons were living on the island. Most of them are identifying themselves both as Europeans and Maori, which distorts the already small database. The Moriori - who live on the island - are also in the same pot as the Maori. Of the 760 inhabitants in 1996, 570 (75 percent) were Europeans and 470 Maori (61.84 percent).
By 2013, with 600 persons left, there were 460 Europeans (76.67 percent) and 350 Maori (58.33 percent). The population of the island, however, is likely to continue to decline:
