Media release from statistics minister Maurice
Today is census day - the day New Zealand takes a snapshot of how
many people and dwellings there are in the country.
Statistics Minister Maurice Williamson is encouraging everyone to
fill out their census forms - online if possible.
"Census information is used by businesses, iwi, councils and the
government to make decisions on issues that affect us all.
"I want to remind everyone that not only is it important to take
part, it's also important to fill in forms honestly. If the
wrong information is provided we won't have a true picture of the
country, and that could affect decisions made in areas such as
health or transport."
Taking part in the census is a legal requirement. If you are
in New Zealand today, whether you are a permanent resident, a
visitor, a child or an adult, you must take part.
"While Statistics NZ is aiming for 35 per cent online
participation, I'm hopeful it will be closer to 50 per cent,"
Maurice Williamson says.
It's expected more than two million forms will be completed via the
"From tomorrow census collectors will be out on the road again to
collect forms that aren't filled in online. Census results
will be released from December."
Either online or on paper, all census information is kept
confidential by Statistics NZ and can only be used for statistical
