Dunedin figure seems to be a bit on the low side?[edit]

This template uses the urban area populations. The territorial authority populations are larger.-gadfium 21:04, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
...and yet the urban area populations are not shown at the reference given - only the territorial authority populations are. Grutness...wha? 01:31, 28 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The {{NZ population data 2018}} template reference may need to be more detailed. It actually gets its data from editors copying from the "Subnational population estimates" spreadsheet found at [1], but it links to [2] as its reference, presumably because that is considered easier for readers to understand than the spreadsheet, but the reference link does not directly contain the urban area population. The urban area population is in [3] which is available from the reference link as "Subnational population estimates (urban rural)" at the bottom of the left side list of links.-gadfium 05:37, 28 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Lcmortensen: is it worth including the TABLECODE7981 in the ref for the population template?-gadfium 05:38, 28 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
