Waikato Demographic and Economic Projections

4 Mar, 2016

WISE V1.4 has been used in a project to develop land use, demographic and economic projections for the Waikato Region (2013-2063). Projections include land use change, population dynamics (population, household, labour force) and economic development (value-added, employment).

The results of the project are provided in a Technical Report that outlines the process and resulting data for land use, demographic and economic projections for the Waikato region, from a baseline in 2013 to 2063 (50 years time horizon).  An overview is provided initially and then each projection output process is outlined. The projections are at a Census Area Unit (CAU) level, and include land use change, population dynamics (population, household, labour force) and economic development (value-added, employment).
