(1) The higher the Index of Deprivation (1 - 10), the more socioeconomically deprived an area is considered (see Glossary). Area Units do not correspond directly to Electorates, therefore only Area Units that are primarily within each Electorate are included.

Prepared from data published by the University of Otago, Wellington.

* Rank 1 (high) to 63 (low) among general electorates. Ranks are of % in each group. Some totals may differ due to rounding.

All tables prepared from Statistics New Zealand 2006 Census data, unless otherwise noted.
