The Hebrew page of this claim for 7,000-15,000 Jews in New Zealand. Why does the english wiki take the lowest estimation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.60.246.151 (talk) 06:49, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

The 2006 census gives 6,858 people of Jewish religion.Census table That appears to be the most reliable figure available.-gadfium 07:00, 10 May 2012 (UTC):Indented line — Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.89.201.238 (talk) 04:33, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
I had added the numbers 10,000-20,000. The census asks about many factors: Ethnicity, Nationality and religion are all Jewish and they are all mixed together. Not all Jews will define themselves as such ethnically or religiously, depend on the person. Moreover, many Jewish people wish not to register themselves in a government record as Jews due to the history. Many Israeli-Jews that lives in New Zealand or American-Jews won't answer their ethnicity as Jewish and neither their Religion as their Judaism in culturally. Is is unclear how many Jewish people are in New Zealand, I assume arround 14,000-16,000. But the diffrent opinions ranges from 7,000 to 20,000.
