Electorate profiles on-line

Electorate profiles, prepared by the parliamentary library, are now on-line.

They include election results, stats about people, households and industries, and maps for our 70 electorates (63 general seats and seven Maori).

Beware, if you’re interested in stats or trivia you could waste a lot of time on it discovering such things as:

Waitaki, where I live, is ranked third for the number of people employed in agriculture, forestry and fishing. That’s  21.4% of the p0pulation compared with a national average of 6.8%.

It’s ranked 62nd for the number of people employed in public administration  and safety with 1.7% employed in those areas compared with the national average of 4.1%.
