The Caversham Project

The Caversham Project was created to identify the main social structures and changes occurring in urban Aotearoa New Zealand through systematic methods and comparative analysis.

Unfortunately, the original website on which this information was published was not sustainable and the University had to retire it.

You may see an archived version of the website via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. Note that database searches will not work with the archived website.

Database information

For those researchers wanting to work with the database, you may download spreadsheets that represent the data within the Caversham Project:
