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.
