New Zealand’s population is growing at its fastest rate in more than a decade, and the country is poised to overtake the United States in the next five years.
A total of 8.1 million Kiwis now live in the country, up from 6.7 million a year ago.
The country’s population grew by more than 6.5 per cent in 2017, which was the fastest rate of any country on the continent.
And the rate of growth is on track to continue at an average annual rate of about 6.2 per cent.
As the number of people living in New Zealand increased, so too did the number who said they had visited the country in the past 12 months, according to a new survey.
“New Zealanders are becoming an increasingly important part of the global conversation, and we are seeing a clear and significant trend towards greater connectivity and increased use of technology in our everyday lives,” said John Geddes, director of the Census and Statistics Authority.
“This has implications for our future as a global society, and a sign that the New Zealand way of life is continuing to thrive.”
New Kiwis are showing us how to live a better, healthier and more productive life, and helping to shape a better future for our children.
“The new census also found that New Zealand has seen a surge in the number and proportion of people aged 65 and over, which has been linked to a higher prevalence of mental health conditions.
The data also revealed that in the three months to December 31, the number for those aged 25 to 64 in New England rose by about 3.2 million, and for those under the age of 65 rose by more that 7 million.
This is the biggest increase in population of any of the 10 largest countries on the planet, the report said.
It is also the highest proportion of New Zealandans aged 25-64 in the world.
New Zealand’s rate of population growth has been fuelled by its rapid economic growth and its large and growing population.
But, as population grows, more and more people are moving to remote communities.
One of the most significant new arrivals is John McPherson, a retired teacher in New Plymouth who is the president of the New Plymouth Tourism Association.”
It’s just a shame we can’t move into the city centre,” he said.”
I’m in New London now, which is about 20 minutes from the city, and I can see the impact it has on the city.
New Plymouth is one of the safest cities in the whole country.
“Mr McPhersons wife, Jane, who is also president of New Plymouth tourism association, said it was an important part, and one of New England’s great advantages, as a place to live.”
And it’s the only place in the city that you can get a job. “
So people have to leave New Plymouth for work or school in order to get around.”
And it’s the only place in the city that you can get a job.
It’s the place where you can work in the evenings and then get to work the next morning.
So people can move around and do their thing, and it’s not that they’re looking for a place of their own.
They’re looking to move somewhere where there’s a job and a place where they can get somewhere to live.
“Ms McPheresons husband, Peter, has been a Kiwi since he was born, and has lived in the town of Whanganui since he moved there from Victoria five years ago.
He has visited New Zealand several times and has always been drawn to the beautiful beaches and vibrant landscape.
He said the growth of New World arrivals had been good for the town, but that people had not always been willing to leave.”
There’s not always this great sense of community,” he added.”
Some people, they’ll just be like, ‘OK, I’m going to move back to the town I grew up in, and move back down there, and just get on with it.’
“But it’s great for us as a town because we have people who have lived here for 30 or 40 years and they’re like, it’s OK to move.”
But if they move back, we don’t get any more people coming in.
It just doesn’t feel that way.
