Understanding New Zealand

Dan McGlashan’s Understanding New Zealand is now being released as a 2nd Edition to take into account the results of the 2017 General Election.

This brilliant demographic analysis of the full breadth of the people of Aotearoa will be updated to tell you what groups of people voted for which parties in the 2017 General Election, exactly which demographics supported those parties and how strongly.

It will also tell you about the direction and size of trends in voting patterns from 2014.

Compiling the data from the Electorate Profiles index on the New Zealand Parliament website into a correlation matrix, Understanding New Zealand discusses the various interrelations between age, income, sex, education, occupation, industry, ethnicity, religion, tenure of dwelling, how the North Island compares to the South and even tobacco smoking habits.

Over 9,000 correlations were examined in the writing of this book, allowing McGlashan to bring enlightenment to any Kiwi with an interest in sociology, psychology, anthropology or politics.

The first edition of Understanding New Zealand is available on Amazon Kindle already and a print version of the 2nd Edition will be available by the end of October.
