Statistics New Zealand - www.stats.govt.nz/census/default.htm
Demographic data is sourced from the 2006 New Zealand Census. The census is the official count of population and dwellings in New Zealand, providing a ‘snapshot’ of our society at a point in time. The New Zealand census is taken every five years.
Department of Building and Housing – www.dbh.govt.nz
Information on average rental income is derived from information gathered from bonds lodged at the Department of Building and Housing. The results may not be a true indication of the rental market, because they only reflect properties where bonds are lodged at the Department of Building and Housing.
Any category that has less than five bonds lodged has been excluded, to prevent individual properties being identified. However, the totals include any excluded items, so that the categories shown may not add up to the total in the “all” category. The market rent regions are based generally on Statistical Area Units from the 2006 Census. However they have been changed to meet the requirements of the Department and others who use the information on these pages. It is important to note that the regions are not an exact match to the Statistical Area Units from the 2006 Census or any other Census.
The data has been produced to show recent market rents for non-government owned properties for which the Department of Building and Housing holds information. It should not be used to determine the market rent of any property or for any other purpose except as an indication of the non-government rental market based on bonds lodged at the Department of Building and Housing.
