Riverview

Overseas arrivals

585 people who were living in Riverview were born overseas and 13.3% arrived in New Zealand within 5 years prior to 2018.

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 Riverview 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.

Riverview'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.

Please note: Stats NZ has given Years since arrival in New Zealand data for the 2018 Census a quality rating of "moderate". See Stats NZ’s DataInfo+ for specific information on what this rating means and recommendations for use.
