Household Labour Force Survey Est. Working-age Population
Statistics NZ Media release and Information release: Household Labour Force Survey Estimated Working-age Population: June 2012 quarter
The 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.
