Dwellings with 3 bedrooms are the most common in the Wellington Region in 2018.
The Number of Bedrooms in a dwelling is an indicator of the size of dwellings, and when combined with Dwelling Type information, provides insight into the role the Wellington Region plays in the housing market. For example, an area of high density dwellings that are predominantly 1-2 bedroom are likely to attract students, single workers and young couples, whereas a high density area with dwellings that are predominantly 2-3 bedroom may attract more empty nesters and some families.
Please note: Statistics New Zealand rate the number of bedrooms topic as "High" quality, so there should be minimal issues with the data. However, the 2018 Census utilised past Census data and statistical imputation to improve the response rate for this variable, leading to a significant reduction in the "Not Stated/Not Elsewhere included" rate in 2018 (which is now close to zero). Users should take care in comparing to earlier years which have a higher Not Stated rate, as dwellings which were not stated in those years are distributed into various categories in 2018.
