population may hit 2 million in early 2030s – Media release

31 March 2021

Auckland’s population may rise from about
1.7 million currently to 2 million by early next decade, Stats NZ said

“Auckland will likely have the highest average
annual growth of New Zealand’s 16 regions over the next 30 years, from
net migration and natural increase (more births than deaths) in relatively
equal shares,” population estimates and projections manager Hamish Slack

Auckland may have 2 million residents by
the early 2030s, but that milestone may come earlier or later depending
on levels of migration over the coming years. Auckland is currently home
to just over one-third of New Zealand’s population (34 percent). By 2048
it could make up 37 percent.
