Statistics New Zealand this week released updated projections of population growth for NZ regions and local authority areas out to 2043. Almost all areas have seen improvements on the back of higher net immigration flows, but still there are 17 areas where population decline is projected. We republish their tables so people looking at the regions and perhaps investing outside the main centres can have realistic views on how much future demand for housing there may be. We also republish tables showing net internal migration flows for each region between the census from 1981 to 2013, noting that although for the past three censuses Auckland has shown net losses, the loss was a lot less between 2006 and 2013 than between 2001 and 2006. Enjoy.
