What New Zealanders Earn

The New Zealand Herald has mapped the annual incomes of every household in the country. Using data from the 2013 Census of Population and Dwellings the Annual Household Income Map is a dot map showing the distribution of income levels throughout new Zealand.

The map provides a number of quick links to zoom the map to New Zealand's major cities. The dots on the map are color coded to reflect the level of income, with red dots indicating higher annual incomes and blue dots lower incomes.

The dots on the map are randomly placed within city blocks so they therefore can't be identified to specific households. However if you zoom in on an urban area the dots do provide an interesting visualization of the wealth distribution of New Zealand's towns and cities.
