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.

Gordon Campbell: On First Time Voting (Greens)

They’ve been asked to explain why they were voting, for whom and what role they thought their parental upbringing had played in shaping their political beliefs ; and at the end, to choose a piece of music. Today’s guest columnist is Ana Avia-O’Connor, who will be casting her first time vote on Saturday for the Greens.
If I didn’t know any better, it would seem the world has conspired for me to be a Green Party voter. Parents, Green voters? Check. Participation in bilingual education that stressed the importance of inquiry, solidarity and the Treaty? Check. Some sort of vegetarian leanings (seven years and counting, jus’ sayin’)? Check. However, above all of that, I’m voting Green because I believe in supporting the importance of every New Zealander’s contribution to Aotearoa, from the hairdresser in Foxton to the fisherman in Bluff. You could say that I like the cut of the Greens’ jib. More>>
