 Older Generation, a Majority in New Zealandís Population

There have been significant changes in the population of New Zealand in the last 10 years.

Upon studying the statistics, it has become evident that the population of children in the present times has reduced compared to the figures 10 years ago- children 0-14 years comprised 23% of the population a decade ago, compared to only 20% last year.

On the contrary, the population of the older generation appears to have gone up, for instance, 10 years ago, 12% of the population comprised of older people aged 65 years and above; Last year, older people aged 65 years and above formed 13% of the population.

Explaining the increase in the numbers of people in the older age groups, population statistics manager Bridget Hamilton-Seymour said, "The number of people aged 100 and over has increased significantly during the last 60 years."
