Auckland’s population may rise from about 1.7 million currently to 2 million by early next decade, Stats NZ said today.
“Auckland will likely have the highest average annual growth of New Zealand’s 16 regions over the next 30 years, from
net migration and natural increase (more births than deaths) in relatively equal shares,” population estimates and
projections manager Hamish Slack said.
Auckland may have 2 million residents by the early 2030s, but that milestone may come earlier or later depending on
levels of migration over the coming years. Auckland is currently home to just over one-third of New Zealand’s population
(34 percent). By 2048 it could make up 37 percent.
