Welcome to Auckland Counts

The Census of Population and Dwellings is a fantastic source of information to help you understand demographic trends across Auckland – New Zealand’s largest city.

This website provides you with the tools to discover demographic trends and patterns across Auckland. Interactive maps and charts are provided at local board level and at Statistical Area 2 (SA2) level (these areas are approximately suburb sized).

Information, where available, is given for the 2006, 2013 and 2018 censuses. More 2018 Census information will be added over time as data is released from Stats NZ.

This online tool is brought to you by the Research and Evaluation Unit (RIMU) at Auckland Council.

A note on data sources and data quality
