New Zealand’s 65+ Population, A statistical volume: 2007

As with other OECD countries, and a growing number of developing nations, the population of New Zealand is ageing. Its most documented features are the rise in average age of population and a burgeoning older population. This is a major demographic development, which will have profound implications for policy making and planning at national, regional and local levels.

New Zealand’s 65+ Population: A statistical volume (2007) aims to bring together key information on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of older New Zealanders (aged 65 years and over) to assist researchers, planners, policy makers, administrators and others interested in ageing-related issues.

This publication draws data from an array of sources, including the five-yearly Census of Population and Dwellings, demographic projections, social surveys, and administrative data. Chapters have been largely structured around key social well-being domains and demographic features.

The seven domains featured address such topics as population size and structure, health, culture and identity, work, housing, and migration. Other social well-being domains, including safety and security, social connectedness, and leisure and recreation may be considered in future updates.

This statistical volume is envisaged as a living document. The information will be updated gradually to ensure it effectively informs debate on issues associated with older people and population ageing. The printable version of New Zealand's 65+ Population: A statistical volume (2007) will remain unchanged, while the Tables section below will be updated.

December 2015 update: Each of the seven chapters have been updated with information from the 2013 Census and the most recently available health data. These updates are in Excel format.
