Number of Africans in New Zealand

A B Oyawale made this Official Information request to Statistics New Zealand

The request was successful.

From: A B Oyawale

Dear Statistics New Zealand,

Kia Ora.

I would like to know:

1. The number of people in New Zealand who identified as 'African' in the 2013 census. This would include South Africans, as I notice your website lists data on South Africans separately, but not Africans (who are classed under the MELAA) generally.

Also, please include those who are of mixed ethnicity, i.e. those who list 'African' as one of their ethnicities.

2. The age distribution of those (above) who identified as African.

Grateful for your time and help with this, and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

A B Oyawale
