The 2020 Trust commissioned Statistics New Zealand to undertake further analysis of the 2013 Census data to get an accurate count of the number and regional distribution of households with school-aged children who do not have access to the internet.
This shows a total of 62,199 New Zealand households with school-aged children who do not have access to the internet. Of these 20,430 (33%) are in Auckland.
Nationally, 15% of households with school-aged children do not have internet access.
Regionally Kawerau (43%), Opotiki (42%) and Wairoa (40%) have the highest percentages.
In Auckland, Mangere-Otahuhu and Otara-Papatoetoe both have 37% with no access.
The results are detailed in the following files for households with school-aged children.
