ANNUAL IN-DEPTH REGIONAL REPORT - Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay Regions
BOUNDARIES: GISBORNE AND HAWKE'S BAY REGIONS
This report brings together a wide range of labour market information released in the past year, much of which is drawn from the 2006 Census. Labour market changes are observed over different timeframes appropriate to the analysis and depending on data availability.
The Gisborne Region covers 13,700 square kilometres, making it the third smallest region in New Zealand, while Hawke's Bay Region covers 21,200 square kilometres, which is the ninth largest region in New Zealand. Information is based on Gisborne Regional Council and Hawke's Bay Regional Council boundaries and, where available, the constituent Territorial Authority (TA) boundaries. Gisborne Region only consists of Gisborne District, while Hawke's Bay Region consists of four Territorial Authorities: Wairoa District, Hastings District, Napier City and Central Hawke's Bay District.
When regional council data is shown, it is based on the actual regional council boundaries, rather than a sum of the Territorial Authorities identified above.
