I agree pretty much with most of the data. However I strongly disagree with the "Noise and Light Pollution" and "Quiet and No Problem with Night Lights" results. Even though generally New Zealand is rather boring country, from my experience Auckland is VERY NOISY city, INCLUDING NIGHTS! It's full of noisy, restless, careless people who often selfishly consider being NOISY as good/right entertainment and sense of so called freedom for themselves. E.g. VERY LOUD MUSIC, FREQUENT UNNECESSARY CAR-HORN USE IN MOST PLACES, DOGS BARKING UNSTOPPABLY, FIREWORKS WITHOUT ANY REASONS FOR CELEBRATIONS or at least no holidays whatsoever. The "Noise Control" and the Police is useless in this regard. I know what I'm talking about as I've lived in many suburbs and neighbourhoods of Auckland since I came here from Europe. I understand personal freedom, it's one of human rights. However I call it abuse and assault if it invades or limits freedoms of other human beings.
When it comes to lights there is many streets in Auckland that don't have enough of lighting or are completely dark at night. At the same time in some places street lights are on during sunny days. Electricity savings? I don't think so!
Therefore in both: "Noise and Light Pollution" and "Quiet and No Problem with Night Lights" I would put MODERATE or even HIGH and LOW respectively.

Query - where are the air quality monitoring sites? There must be a difference between CBD and suburbs, and the air quality in CBD is the one that matters most for the growing number of city residents.
