Population


Note: The census usually resident population is a count of all people who usually live in Christchurch AND are present anywhere in New Zealand on census night (5 March 2013). This count EXCLUDES residents who are temporarily overseas on census night and also excludes visitors from overseas. 
Note: The estimated resident population at 30 June 2013 differs from the 5 March 2013 census count for the following reasons: The estimate takes into account residents missed by the census (net undercount); it INCLUDES residents temporarily overseas on census night; and it takes into account population change (births, deaths and migration) between March and June of the same year.
