Today I’ve got something for the statistic nerds out there.
The NZ Government provides a little population counter, called the NZ population clock. It doesn’t really do anything apart from giving you a rough estimation about how many people live in NZ.
According to stats.gov.nz the current increase is:
New Zealand’s population is estimated to increase by one person every 29 minutes and 19 seconds.
So at this very point of writing there must be around 4,408,337 people down here. Not much for a country of the size of former West-Germany. (Screw you children, born after 1989 :p)
Anyway, in case you want to check the population growth now and then, just click on the following link.
