Caveats on release

The current dwelling and household estimates do not make any adjustment for the Canterbury earthquakes. While it is expected that there will be a decrease in the number of permanent private dwellings due to the earthquakes, there has been an increase in the number of temporary private dwellings (caravans, cabins, tents and other makeshift dwellings) being used by households. At this stage the net effects on the dwelling and household estimates are unknown. The estimates may be subject to revision if suitable information becomes available at a later date.
