Engagement about 2018 Census content

Online consultation by Statistics NZ.

From the website:

Welcome to the 2018 Census content discussion forum!
The 2018 New Zealand Census of Population and Dwellings will take place five years after it was last held in 2013. The census is the official count of how many people and dwellings there are in New Zealand.

Information from the census helps determine how billions of dollars of government funding is spent in the community. It is used to help make decisions about which services are needed and where they should be, such as hospitals, kĊhanga reo, schools, roads, public transport, and recreational facilities. Census information is used by councils, community groups, iwi, and businesses to plan for the future.

Statistics NZ has developed a preliminary view of content for the 2018 Census. While there is scope for some new content, we need to balance changing information needs with comparing data over time. The online discussions are structured around topics, including proposed changes as a starting point for discussion.

According to the website, the time period for formal submission was from May 18 through June 30, 2015.
