Population Density.

Find out where people live, work and play.

Data Ventures is working together with major telecommunication companies in New Zealand. Each provider gave Data Ventures access to an aggregated and anonymised sum total of mobile devices down to suburb in New Zealand, across different time periods.

From there, we use Stats NZ expertise to develop population estimates that represent not just the number of mobile devices, but all of New Zealand's population - including visiting, residing and population that don't own a mobile phone.
