Household Labour Force Survey December 2013 quarter
Household Labour Force Survey estimated working-age
population: December 2013 quarter –
29 January 2014
Household Labour Force Survey (HLFS) estimated working-age
population is based on national resident population
estimates that are adjusted to be consistent with the scope
of the HLFS.
The working-age population is an estimate
of the usually resident, non-institutionalised, civilian
population of New Zealand aged 15 years and over. It
provides the benchmark figure for the number of people in
the labour market each quarter – results from the HLFS are
then summed to this figure. It is based on 2006 Census data
and is updated using early estimates of births, deaths, and
net permanent and long-term migration.

Certainly, at the end of this week, the next US President will have won office (at least in part) thanks to his proven ability at (a) scapegoating refugees and migrants (b) wooing neo-Nazis and racial supremacists (c) attacking journalists and judges (d) threatening to jail his opponents (e) urging nuclear proliferation and (e) by promising to restrict women’s rights to control their own fertility.
On the face of that campaign record, there wouldn’t seem to be much in common between Donald Trump and say, Spain’s centre-left populist party, Podemos. Yet arguably, the similarities could be instructive for the Labour/Green partnership here. More>>
