Epsom stereotype not true

Stuff reported:

, New Zealand’s richest and whitest electorate, shows it can get down and dirty during this election campaign.

Epsom actually is below average in terms of “white” people. 73.5% of the electorate say they are European or NZer compared to 78.8% average for NZ. So not only are they not the whitest, they are not in the top 10, 20, 30 or 40. They are 47th out of 63.

Also incorrect in terms of income. Their median income is the 2nd highest in NZ, not the top.
