Overcrowding

This indicator shows how many New Zealanders live in a crowded household. Typically measures of crowding involve a calculation of the number of rooms or bedrooms available for the number of people in the house. We use the Canadian National Occupancy Standard (CNOS). Using this standard, a person is living in a crowded house if one or more extra bedrooms is needed.

10.8%
of New Zealanders lived in a crowded household in 2018.
