New Stats Reveal Where You Should Live If You're Struggling With NZ's "Man Drought"
Believe it or not, New Zealand is in the midst of a "man drought" - yep, it's an actual thing.
Back in 2013, Census figures showed that the male to female ratio was at an all time low. There were over 66,000 more women between the ages of 25–49 living in New Zealand than there were men.
So where'd they all go? Well, if you've been struggling with the "drought", the 'Garden City' is where you should be heading.
According to the latest Greater Christchurch Dashboard, Chch's male population is on the rise.
“The central city population is still well below 2010 levels," says MP Nicky Wagner. "As many of us who live in the region have seen first-hand, there's been a significant population shift from Christchurch city to the neighbouring Selwyn and Waimakariri districts."
“And while many places around the country are in the midst of a ‘man drought’, Christchurch has almost 6000 more young men aged 20-29 than women of the same age.”
