Heatmaps of housing outcomes

A high-level overview of the housing situation in a place that can be used as a starting point for identifying issues and opportunities that need further exploration.

These maps show how places across New Zealand are performing relative to specific benchmarks and to one another. These maps are used as a starting point for further analysis – used alone, they can’t help to make decisions about what needs to be done, where and how. Taking a place-based approach means using these insights alongside other context, knowledge and relationships.​

The heatmaps compare places based on these measures:

  • Severe housing deprivation
  • Rental stress
  • Home ownership affordability.
