This article is about the demographic features of the population of New Zealand, including population density, ethnicity, education level, health of the populace, economic status, religious affiliations and other aspects of the population.

New Zealanders are those people who are inhabitants of New Zealand. The demographics of New Zealand are characterised by a relatively young and growing population and relatively high levels of inbound migration (mainly from the United Kingdom and from Asia and the Pacific) and outbound migration (mainly to Australia and the United Kingdom). The ethnic makeup of the population, originally composed of indigenous Māori only, was dominated by European settlers for most of the 19th and 20th centuries, until immigration from Asia and the Pacific Islands, as well as high Māori birthrates, started to shift this state to a more multi-ethnic mix.
