A summary of data about Auckland's older population from the 2018 Census and from the 2018 Quality of Life Survey.

Auckland’s older population is growing proportionately faster than any other age group.

Compared to the rest of New Zealand, this group is significantly more ethnically diverse and less likely to own their own home.

An ageing Auckland population presents opportunities and challenges to ensure all older people can contribute and participate in the community.

This will have implications for all areas of life including infrastructure provision, transport, housing, healthcare, recreation, leisure, accessibility and in the labour force.
