The 2011 Census Content Report outlines decisions on the content to be included in the 2011 Census of Population and Dwellings. These are based on a comprehensive process of consultation, questionnaire development, testing, and classification development.

Overall, the decisions are consistent with the content strategy for the 2011 Census that was released in May 2008: minimal change, no new topics, and the improvement of data quality with a continuing emphasis on addressing the needs of users for continuity and comparability with previous census outputs.The 2010 Census Dress Rehearsal will provide the last opportunity to test and evaluate the content decisions that have been made by the Government Statistician ahead of the 2011 Census. Some minor changes may occur as a result of Dress Rehearsal evaluation or as a result of the outcomes of previously scheduled Statistics New Zealand reviews of classifications and/or standards.

The information provided by everyone who participated in the consultation process will help to ensure that the 2011 Census is of great value to New Zealand society, meeting the data quality expectations of users from government, business, community, and academic sectors. It will also provide a basis for planning and development of the 2016 Census.
