National Population Estimates: At 30 June 2017
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  14 August 2017
Key facts

14 August 2018: We replaced the Excel tables for this release. We discovered a minor error in historical female median age figures up to 2013. This error did not affect the latest population figures published for 2016–18.

See National population estimates: At 30 June 2017 on our new website for the corrected tables.

During the June 2017 year:

  • New Zealand's population grew by 100,400 (2.1 percent).
  • Natural increase (births minus deaths) was 28,100 and net migration gain (arrivals minus departures) was 72,300.

At 30 June 2017: 

  • New Zealand's estimated resident population was 4.79 million.
  • There were 2.36 million males and 2.43 million females, equivalent to 97 males for every 100 females.
  • The median age for males and females was 35.6 and 38.3 years, respectively.
