About this report

The Waikato Regional Council (WRC) approached the University of Waikato in early 2015 with a request to update the Territorial Authority (TA) level population, household and labour force projections for the Waikato Region undertaken in 2014 (Cameron and Cochrane, 2014). The 2014 projections used as a base population the 2013 Estimated Usually Resident Populations (EURPs) estimated by Statistics New Zealand before data from the 2013 Census of Population and Dwellings was fully released. The subsequent revised 2013 EURPs released by Statistics New Zealand in 2014 differed markedly for some of the TAs in the Waikato region.
