Hutt CityCommunity profile

In Hutt City 73.2% of the population over 15 did unpaid housework in the 4 weeks leading up to the 2018 census date.

There has been increased interest in identifying, acknowledging and valuing the unpaid work that supports home and community life. The changing amount of time spent on unpaid housework in different Household Types and, particularly the distribution of this work within the household, can indicate the changing roles of males, females and older children in society. The level of unpaid domestic work in Hutt City may also be related to Household Income, as higher income households are able to outsource some of these tasks.

Please note: Stats NZ has given Unpaid activities data for the 2018 Census a quality rating of "Poor". This indicates there may be some issues looking at the comparisons to 2013 and 2006. Users should avoid concluding that any change in the categories is purely due to real world change. See Stats NZ’s DataInfo+ for specific information on what this rating means and recommendations for use.
