Healthy Families area population pyramids:

Population pyramids provide an overview of the changing population structure in each "Healthy Families" area over time. The population is divided, by gender, into five year age bands from ≤ 5 years to ≥ 85 years. Mid-year (30th June). Population estimates, based on the 2013 census population are used.

New Zealand Index of Deprivation meshblock data:

The index of deprivation gives a weighted score for each meshblock area (a Statistics NZ defined boundary containing, on average, 81 people) in New Zealand. The score is based on nine indicators taken from the 2013 New Zealand Census. From this score, meshblocks are divided into deciles from 1 (least deprived) to 10 (most deprived). Data displayed in this atlas was created by the Wellington School of Medicine, University of Otago.
