Growing up in Auckland? Mapping drivers of residential land growth, NZIER public discussion paper 2016/3

13 July 2016

In this paper we decomposed growth in residential land into population growth, household size, and land use per capita. We found that the growth in residential land between 1996 and 2013 was identical to the rate of population growth: 28%. Population density has not change significantly during that period. Auckland's urban regulations have pushed Auckland outwards, but not upwards.
