    those figures are complete rubbish. Just looking around reveals far more from a certain country than those figures suggest

    Can't argue with the census results. I think everyone who worked on it did a fantastic job

    Far more than you think, Chika,- the census only counts those that are litterate enough to fill in a form!

    Think I know where you're coming from Bison; and I can't disagree.

    If you look at ancestry then you'll find:

    English - 848,227
    Irish - 187,039
    Scottish - 186,480
    NZ - 27,618
    Maori - 23,053

    Shows slightly more Irish than Jocks...

    Undercount data from last census suggests that kiwis are far less likely to fill out their census forms than any other group.

    Can't wait until I see your official estimates of population. When are they likely to come out?

    There are more yanks that are immigrating at the moment, or at least have in the last year than I have ever known around my industry.

    Depends where you sit/work some industries and professions are predisposed to certain origins. There are a lot of Kiwis around the construction industry whilst a lot of Saffas around the engineering mining areas.

    last two jobs (different industries) have been completely inundated by one particular country of birth. Just saying the figures don't seem to add up to my empirical analysis.
