2018 Severe Housing Deprivation Estimate

As part of improving data on homelessness, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) contracted the University of Otago to produce an estimate of the homeless population using 2018 Census data.

These data tables are sourced from the Severe housing deprivation in Aotearoa New Zealand, 2018 report. (https://www.hud.govt.nz/news-and-resources/statistics-and-research/2018-severe-housing-deprivation-estimate/)

The full report describes the significant caveats around these figures and the reason they are considered a lower-bound (or minimum) estimate, as well as why comparisons over time are not advised. We urge you to read the report prior to using the data.

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development website also includes some questions and answers about the report.
