Fiji Sun - - World News -

Welling­ton: New Zealand’s pop­u­la­tion is on track to reach five mil­lion by 2020 - or sooner, Sta­tis­tics New Zealand says. The agency said in the 12 months to June, the pop­u­la­tion has grown at its fastest rate since the early 1960s. That was a 2.1 per cent - or 97,000 - pop­u­la­tion in­crease. “Our pop­u­la­tion was es­ti­mated to be 4.69 mil­lion at 30 June 2016, with net mi­gra­tion be­ing 69,100 over the June year,” Sta­tis­tics NZ se­nior de­mog­ra­pher Kim Dun­stan said.
