EMAIL  Print A+
According to the Statistics New Zealand, the population of the Island nation grew by 2.1 percent (97,300) during the year 2015-16.  As per the statistical data received on 30th June 2016 the resident population of the Island was at its largest of 4.69 million.

Jo-Anne Skinner, population statistics senior manager said; “Annual population growth over 2 percent is high by New Zealand standards.”

He further added that “The last time we experienced population growth over 2 percent was in 1974. And before that, at the peak of the baby boom in the 1950s and early 1960s.”

The rapid increase in population is due to the increased levels of immigrant influx. During the period June 2015 - 2016, the number of arrivals was approx. 125,100, whereas the number of departures was less than 56,000. According to mortality rate the number of increase in population during this period was 28,200. 

Over the last decade, New Zealand has seen an average increase in net migration by 21,800. During this period the number of young migrant workers increased by 3.6 per cent.
