An Insight into Coromandel communities

An Insight into Coromandel communities

Coromandel MP Scott Simpson says newly released statistical information is offering a fascinating insight into our communities.

Statistics New Zealand has just released “2013 QuickStats about a place”.

It’s an online tool that combines census and other official statistics to profile New Zealand’s neighbourhoods.

Scott Simpson MP says “The information is easy to understand and full of really interesting details, even for quite small places. You can find out, for example, how do people in Paeroa get to work? What’s the average age in Whitianga? Or how many Ngatea households have the Internet?”

He says there’s information about population, incomes, housing, cultural diversity, age and gender.

Scott Simpson says the information will be really useful for making decisions about the needs of Coromandel’s communities.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
