New Zealand’s population to rise around 1 million in 20 years, ethnic diversity likely to rise

New Zealand’s population is likely to rise by around one million in the next 20 years, will all major ethnic groups rising, stated Statistics New Zealand. The ‘European or Other’ group is likely to drop to around 66 percent of the New Zealand’s total population in 2038 from 75 percent in 2013. According to population statistics senior manager Peter Dolan, slower growth in broad ‘European or Other’ ethnic population is because of its older age structure compared to other ethnic groups.

On the contrary, ethnic groups with higher birth rates or higher migration gains are expected to increase their share of the population. According to the projections, ethnic shares of Chinese, Indian, Samoan, and Middle Eastern/Latin American/African of New Zealand’s population would rise, with the Chinese and Indian ethnic shares nearly doubling.
