The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
The Council has sought to gain greater understanding of the people moving into and around the Waimakariri District since the earthquakes and since January 2012 has conducted two surveys. The Change of Address Survey covered the period 1 January 2012 to 30 April 2013, while the New Dwellings Survey which is on going focuses attention on the households moving dwellings completed since 1 March 2013.
The Change of address survey report (pdf, 1.1 MB) analyses the responses from 760 households that changed address within the Waimakariri District with an emphasis on the experiences of people who moved away from area's zoned 'red' in Christchurch City and the Waimakariri District. An interim report of this survey was released in May 2013 for the period January - August 2013 and final report of the Change of Address Survey pays attention to the differences between the households that moved into the district during the first and eight months of the survey.
The New dwelling survey (pdf, 1.9 MB) follows on from the Change of address survey, and provides information about the people moving into new dwellings in the district since the March 2013 Census. The report of this survey also captures the experiences of people who have moved away from 'red zones', including those who have spent time in temporary accommodation waiting for their new homes to be completed. Both surveys pay attention to the age distribution for members of respondent households, the levels of workplace participation and involvement with community groups
