1.  2013 Census QuickStats about culture and identity  



2013 Census QuickStats about culture and identity gives you information about New 

Zealand's increasingly diverse population.  

Find out about: 

  ethnic groups in New Zealand 



  birthplace and people born overseas  

  languages spoken 



  religious affiliation. 

All 2013 data in this report is based on the census usually resident population count from 

New Zealand's 2013 Census of Population and Dwellings, held on 5 March 2013. The 

2006 and 2001 data that has been included for comparison purposes is based on the 

census usually resident population counts from New Zealand's 2006 and 2001 Censuses. 

 



 

2.  Ethnic groups in New Zealand 

New Zealand's major ethnic groups continue to grow 

The European ethnic group was still New Zealand's largest major ethnic group at the 

2013 Census. Nearly three-quarters of the population (2,969,391 people or 74.0 percent) 

identified with one or more European ethnicities. This compared with 67.6 percent 

(2,609,589 people) in 2006. The increase seems to be partly due to fewer people 

identifying themselves as 'New Zealander' in 2013.  

Other major ethnic groups that increased in size included:  

  Māori – 14.9 percent of the population in 2013 (598,605 people), up from 14.6 



percent in 2006 (565,329) 

  Asian – 11.8 percent of the population (471,708), up from 9.2 percent (354,552) 



  Pacific peoples – 7.4 percent of the population (295,941), up from 6.9 percent 

(265,974) 

  Middle Eastern/Latin American/African – 1.2 percent of the population (46,953), up 



from 0.9 percent (34,743).

Middle Eastern/Latin American/African, and Asian 



ethnic groups on the rise 

The Middle Eastern/Latin American/African, and Asian ethnic groups increased by more 

than 30 percent over the seven years between the 2006 and the 2013 Censuses. Of the 

major ethnic groups, those with the largest percentage increases were: 

 



2013 Census QuickStats about culture and identity. 

  Middle Eastern/Latin American/African (up 35.1 percent) 



  Asian (up 33.0 percent) 

  European (up 13.8 percent) 



  Pacific peoples (up 11.3 percent) 

  Māori (up 5.9 percent). 



Māori most likely to identify with more than one ethnic 

group 


More than half of Māori (53.5 percent or 320,406 people) identified with two or more 

ethnic groups, compared with 46.5 percent who identified with Māori only. Māori was the 

only major ethnic group in which people were more likely to identify with two or more 

major ethnic groups than just one.  

In other major ethnic groups, the proportions of people identifying with two or more major 

ethnic groups were: 

  European – 13.3 percent  



  Asian – 9.9 percent  

  Pacific peoples – 37.2 percent  



  Middle Eastern/Latin American/African – 16.8 percent.

several. Where a person reported more than one ethnic group, they have been counted in each 

applicable group. 

2.  Middle Eastern/Latin American/African was introduced as a new category for the 2006 Census. 

Previously, Middle Eastern/Latin American/African responses were allocated to the ‘other ethnicity’ 

category. 

3.  Consists of responses for a number of small ethnic groups and for New Zealander. New Zealander 

was included as a new category for the 2006 Census. In 2001 New Zealander was counted in the 

European category.

Younger people identify with more ethnic groups than 

older people 

Children (0–14 years) were more likely than people aged 65 years and over to belong to 

more than one ethnic group. This difference has increased since the 2006 Census.  In 

2013, the proportions of these two age groups identifying with more than one ethnic 

group were: 

 



2013 Census QuickStats about culture and identity. 

  children – 22.8 percent (19.7 percent in 2006) 



  65 years and over – 2.6 percent (3.5 percent in 2006). 

Overall, the proportion of the population identifying with more than one ethnic group 

increased across recent censuses. The proportions of people identifying with more than 

one ethnic group were: 

  11.2 percent in 2013 



  10.4 percent in 2006 

  9.0 percent in 2001.

Age group (years)

 

European ethnic group older than other major ethnic 



groups 

People who identified with European ethnic groups were generally older than people 

belonging to other major ethnic groups. The median age (half are younger, and half are 

older than this age) for each major ethnic group in 2013 was: 

  European – 41.0 years (38.1 years in 2006) 



  Māori – 23.9 years (22.7 years in 2006) 

  Pacific peoples – 22.1 years (21.1 years in 2006) 



  Asian – 30.6 years (28.3 years in 2006)

3.  European ethnic group 

Higher proportion of Europeans in South Island regions 

All South Island regions had a higher proportion of people who identified with one or more 

European ethnicities than any region in the North Island. 

The region in the South Island with the highest proportion of people who identified with 

one or more European ethnicities was the Tasman region (93.1 percent), and the lowest 

was the Canterbury region (86.9 percent). 

The region in the North Island with the highest proportion of people who identified with 

one or more European ethnicities was the Taranaki region (86.2 percent), and the lowest 

was the Auckland region (59.3 percent). 

Decrease in people with English or Australian ethnicity 

Compared with the previous census, fewer people living in New Zealand identified with 

either the English ethnic group or the Australian ethnic group. 

In 2013, 38,916 people identified with the English ethnic group – a decrease of 5,286 

people (12.0 percent) from 2006. 

The median age of people with English ethnicity was 46.0 years, which was older than 

the median age of all people identifying with the European ethnic group (41.0 years). 

Only 10.9 percent of people identifying with the English ethnic group were born in New 

Zealand, with most (89.1 percent) born overseas. 

In 2013, 22,467 people identified as Australian – a decrease of 3,888 people (14.8 

percent) from 2006. Most of these people (90.8 percent in 2013) were born overseas. 

However, between 2006 and 2013, some European ethnic groups experienced an 

increase in New Zealand, including:  

  British not further defined – up 8,832 people (32.5 percent) 



  Russian – up 1,143 people (23.6 percent) 

  German – up 1,893 people (17.3 percent) 



  American – up 1,533 people (14.2 percent) 

  Irish – up 1,542 people (12.2 percent). 



 

 



 

4.  Māori ethnic group 

Māori ethnic group increasing in almost every region 

The percentage of people who identified with the Māori ethnic group increased in almost 

all regions between 2006 and 2013. The two regions with the biggest increases were:  

  Gisborne – 48.9 percent of the population were Māori in 2013 (up from 47.3 



percent in 2006)  

  Taranaki – 17.4 percent were Māori in 2013 (up from 15.8 percent in 2006).  



Only two regions did not have an increase in the percentage of Māori: 

  Auckland – 10.7 percent of the population were Māori in 2013 (down from 11.1 



percent in 2006) 

  Bay of Plenty – 27.5 percent were Māori in 2013 (the same as in 2006). 



Gisborne and Northland regions had the highest proportion of Māori. Almost half of the 

people (48.9 percent) in the Gisborne region and a third (32.4 percent) in the Northland 

region identified with the Māori ethnic group. 

Of all regions, Gisborne had the highest median age for Māori at 26.3 years. Māori in the 

Northland and Marlborough regions were also slightly older, having a median age of 25.8 

years, compared with a median age of 23.9 years for all Māori living in New Zealand. In 

contrast, Māori living in the Otago region were slightly younger, with a median age of 21.9 

years. 


Of all regions, Canterbury had the highest percentage of Māori who were male (50.9 

percent or 21,324 people). Canterbury was the only region where there were more Māori 

males than Māori females. 

Māori are a youthful population 

A high proportion of Māori (43.6 percent or 260,940 people) were aged under 20 in 2013, 

compared with the 27.4 percent of the total population in this age group. However, the 

median age of Māori (23.9 years) increased since 2006, when it was 22.7 years. 

Children (0–14 years) made up 33.8 percent of Māori in 2013. Of all regions, Tasman had 

the highest proportion of Māori who were children, at 36.2 percent. 

Almost a quarter of Māori children (23.7 percent or 48,033 people) lived in the Auckland 

region, 14.2 percent (28,659) in the Waikato region, and 11.5 percent (23,247) in the Bay 

of Plenty region.

Many Māori children also identify with other major 

ethnic groups 

Māori children (aged 0–14 years) were more likely than Māori adults to also identify with 

the Pacific peoples, Asian, or Middle Eastern/Latin American/African major ethnic groups. 

Of Māori who identified with one or more of these groups: 

  58.8 percent (28,884) who identified with Pacific peoples were children  



  58.7 percent (945) who identified with Middle Eastern/Latin American/African were 

children 

  51.9 percent (5,322) who identified with at least one of the Asian ethnic groups 



were children 

  39.9 percent (116,820) who identified with European were children.  



The proportion of Māori who also identified as European has continued to increase. In 

2013, almost half (48.9 percent or 292,938 people) of Māori also identified with at least 

one of the European ethnicities, compared with 42.2 percent in 2006, and 40.5 percent in 

2001.

5.  Asian ethnic group 

Asian ethnic groups grow most in Auckland region 

While there was an increase in the proportion of Asians living in every region, the biggest 

growth occurred in the Auckland region. In 2013, almost 1 in 4 people (23.1 percent or 

307,233 people) living in the Auckland region identified with one or more Asian ethnic 

groups, compared with 1 in 5 people (18.9 percent) in 2006.  

Other regions that also experienced an increase in the proportion of people identifying 

with one or more Asian ethnic groups in 2013 included: 

  Wellington – 10.5 percent (8.4 percent in 2006) 



  Waikato – 6.9 percent (5.0 percent in 2006) 

  Bay of Plenty – 5.2 percent (3.2 percent in 2006). 



The Auckland local board areas with the largest Asian populations were: 

  Howick – 47,511 people (38.8 percent of people living in Howick) 



  Whau – 24,078 people (35.4 percent) 

  Albert-Eden – 25,278 people (28.2 percent). 



Almost two-thirds (65.1 percent) of people who identified with at least one Asian ethnic 

group lived in the Auckland region in 2013. 

Indian ethnic group growing faster than Chinese 

The number of people identifying with the Indian ethnic group increased 48.4 percent 

between 2006 and 2013, compared with an increase of 16.2 percent for the Chinese 

ethnic group. 

Chinese remained the largest Asian ethnic group in 2013, with 171,411 people (36.3 

percent of the Asian ethnic group, down from 41.6 percent in 2006). 

Indian was the second-largest Asian ethnic group in 2013, with 155,178 people (32.9 

percent of the Asian ethnic group, up from 29.5 percent in 2006). 

The Indian ethnic group also grew faster than the Chinese ethnic group between the 

2001 and 2006 Censuses: 

  Indian – up 68.2 percent  



  Chinese – up 40.5 percent.
