Alternative sources of data for 2011 Census variables

Statistics New Zealand has identified alternative data sources that may help users fill information gaps left by the halting of the 2011 Census.

The March 2011 Census was called off due to the impacts of the 22 February Christchurch earthquake. The next census will be held in March 2013.

This resource provides links to reports and data from Statistics New Zealand, as well as other government and non-government organisations, that can assist users with their planning.

Both the level of geography and classification vary by source so users should be aware of this when applying the data.

For any questions regarding the data sources in this paper, please contact the source agency.

Definitions of census variables are available on our website. For more information about census please contact the Information Centre
