Total research staff employed or contracted by universities in New Zealand
By age group and gender, 2017, number of staff
The sum of the age groups does not equal the totals as these have been derived from the designation data, and because totals include staf whose age was unknown. The age group totals do not match the designation totals in some cases due to data discrepancies.
To allow comparisons over time, the colleges of education data, and data from polytechnics who have merged with universities, has been included with the universities data.
Due to small numbers information on the age group of the research staff at polytechnics and wānanga is not available.
To allow comparisons over time, the colleges of education data, and data from polytechnics who have merged with universities, has been included with the universities' data. The four mergers of the colleges of education with the universities took place over the years 2004 to 2007.
Data have been rounded to protect the privacy of individuals and counts may not add to the total.
