Derived from the Census questions:

'In the last 4 weeks, which of these activities have you done without pay?

This is a multi-response question.

Ikaroa-Rāwhiti
Unpaid activities

In recognition of the significant contribution of voluntary and unpaid work in the economy, particularly by women, this question in the census provides data that has not traditionally been collected in social and economic statistics. It includes data on unpaid work including domestic activity, unpaid child care, aged care and care of people with disabilities.

When analysed in conjunction with a community's Age Structure, Family type, Household type and Deprivation index, the importance of unpaid work to the community and economy can be understood as well as the demographics of those who contribute to the unpaid economy.

The data presented is for the population aged over 15.
