DHB population profiles 2020-2030

Effective workforce planning and development is informed by the current population profile and anticipates future population size and composition

This resource summarises 10 years of population projections based on information provided by the Ministry of Health to Te Pou. It replaces the previous publication titled DHB population profiles 2019-2029.

The projections are based on projections produced by Statistics New Zealand specifically for the Ministry of Health:

  • according to assumptions specified by the Ministry
  • based on the 2013 Population census-estimated resident population.

More detailed information, including primary and secondary ethnicity, age groups, and gender, can be requested from Statistics New Zealand, the Ministry of Health, or Te Pou.
