Supporting Regional Success: District and Town Profiles

Author Published Date Read Publication

This overview document illustrates the baseline socio-economic and demographic characteristics of the three study locations within the Supporting Success in Regional Settlements programme of BBHTC National Science Challenge.

The three study locations are: Ashburton township in Ashburton District, Timaru City in Timaru District and Oamaru township in Waitaki District. Data are presented for Ashburton, Timaru, and Waitaki Territorial Authority areas using data from the 2013 NZ Census to give an indication of the similarities and differences between these places on a number of key measures. The maps covering the location of each study area are shown below (Figure 1). In the report we present and comment on a series of key statistics and trends over time in the three areas before looking in more detail at the sub-district data for each area. This base-line report supplements a larger body of research conducted using a qualitative co-construction of knowledge methodology, focusing on attempts by local stakeholders to regenerate their regions, districts and small towns.
