On the Demography of Pacific People in New Zealand

This paper is an expanded version of a keynote address given by former Government Statistician, Len Cook, at the Pacific Vision Conference held in Auckland on 27-30 July 1999.

The primary aim of this address was to provide demographic background for the conference, where the main thrust was to look at the directions being taken by Pacific people in New Zealand into the next century, using the motif “Navigating the Currents of the Next Millennium”. This paper outlines the contemporary demographic situation of Pacific peoples in New Zealand, including the historical context, drawing attention to significant changes that are taking place in composition and the underlying dynamics. The final section reviews the future demographic prospects, drawing on the 1996-base population projections produced by Statistics New Zealand, and looks at the potential consequences both for New Zealand and for people of Pacific ethnicities.
