Crime in New Zealand – by Ethnicity and Crime Type – Year to December 2023

Share This:

As the Offender Demographics page on the NZ Police Data site is now up to date to December 2023, I figured it was time for another update.

I have chosen to ignore the Sex distribution in this dive, and only look at the Ethnic Group breakdowns.

The first column chart shows the raw number of offences, built from the data from the relevant Offence heading on the Police site, which is screenshotted next to each graph.

Next to THAT one is the per-100k graph which shows how many offences are committed per 100,000 people in that group.

The source for the population is the 2018 Census, which gave the following (as MELA is not an ethnicity in the Police Stats, it has been combined with Other): We should have 2023 Census data.. soon?

Edit at 1544 06022024: The per-100k here was referencing ALL-TIME offending rather than the year to December 2023. This has been corrected. Thank you to the kind person who pointed it out.
