The 2018 deprivation index(external link) was developed by researchers at the University of Otago, and combines nine variables from the 2018 census which reflect dimensions of socio-economic deprivation. NZDep2018 provides a deprivation score for each meshblock in New Zealand (a meshblock is generally the size of a street block in urban areas, containing approximately 30-60 dwellings). Deprivation scores apply to areas rather than individual people.
A person is regarded as disabled if they have 'a lot of difficulty' or 'cannot do at all' one or more of the six activities in the Activity limitations questions. These six questions are the Washington Group Short Set of questions on Disability and are referred to as Activity limitations in the 2018 Census. The questions relate to difficulty: seeing; hearing; walking or climbing steps; remembering or concentrating; washing all over or dressing; and communicating.

The 2023 profiles are compiled by the Community Support, Governance and Partnerships Unit. They are a record of the community at the point in time they were compiled – February 2023 – so some information may now be outdated.
Profiles include core demographics, community infrastructure and community resilience.
