The Wellington City population forecast for 2021 is 216,505, and is forecast to grow to 248,953 by 2043.
The Wellington City population and household forecasts present what is driving population change in the community and how the population, age structure and household types will change each year between 2013 and 2043.
The forecasts are designed to provide community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public with knowledge to make confident decisions about the future.
These forecasts were created in December 2020 by .id, the population experts, on behalf of Wellington City. Forecasts are available for each year from 2013 to 2043. We regularly monitor the performance of our forecasts.
