(1) People who reported more than one ethnic group are counted once in each group reported. This means that
     the total number of responses for all ethnic groups can be greater than the total number of people who
    stated their ethnicities.

(2) There are only two years of ethnicity statistics due to changes in the way ethnic statistics are output,
    which means a complete break in the ethnicity series.

(3) The MELAA category contains all Middle Eastern, Latin American, and African ethnicity responses.
(4) The category 'Other ethnicity' includes the 'New Zealander' responses.
(5) Totals include the 'not specified' category.

(1) Median weekly earnings is only from those earning wages and salaries and/or self-employment income.
(2) Because the New Zealand Income Survey is a sample survey, all the results are subject to sampling error.
    Care should be taken when interpreting movements over time, particularly for the smaller regional council
    areas. Estimates of change are subject to higher sampling error than estimates of level. Generally, the
    sampling error for medians is higher for smaller regional council areas than for larger regional council
    areas.
