Source:Statistics New Zealand Census, 1986 to 2013
Frequency:Census years (generally 5-yr intervals, though 2006 to 2013 was a 7-yr interval due to the cancellation of the 2011 Census due to the Christchurch earthquakes).
Availability:This data is from Auckland dwelling and tenure tables in the Statistics New Zealand publication "Housing in Auckland: Trends in housing from the Census of Population and Dwellings 1991 to 2013".
Note:Census year intervals are irregular, with the 2006-2013 an exception to the usual 5-yearly census.
The census did not ask respondents about family trusts prior to 2006. Ownership figures for 2006 and 2013 include households whose home was held in a family trust.
Relevance:Levels of home ownership are a guide to population stability, the relative wealth of the community, and changes in lifestyle and household composition. Many people consider home ownership to be a goal, providing personal independence as well as stability and security for their families and a form of savings for retirement.
