The Year of Arrival data records when the overseas born population arrived in New Zealand. The data shows the degree to which areas are 'ports' for new overseas migrants and reveals the role of the Wairoa District in housing the overseas-born. The number of recent arrivals in an area is often determined by housing affordability, employment opportunities and pre-existing communities located in the area.

The Wairoa District's Year of Arrival data, when used with Country of Birth, Religion and Languages Spoken data, is a good indicator of the likely need for services in migrant communities.

Derived from the Census question:
