2011 Census products and services – consultation and planning

2011 Census

The 2011 Census was not held on 8 March 2011 as planned, due to the Christchurch earthquake on 22 February 2011. This means we will not be able to publish any census products.

For the latest news on the census, see here.

Planning and consultation

This page describes our consultation and planning for products we intended to produce, had we held the 2011 Census (the page was last updated October 2010).

Census data users gave us their feedback through the 2006 Census Products and Services Review. We analysed the feedback and held discussions with data users before forming our key objectives for planning the 2011 Census products and services mix.

Our three key objectives are:

  1. being consistent with what was produced from the 2006 Census
  2. improving the quality of existing products
  3. filling gaps in the 2006 Census products and services mix, as identified by data users, through both existing and a limited number of new products.

Communication and consultation regarding the proposed 2011 Census product and services mix has started and will continue into 2011. 

Census data users update meetings

From late August to early October 2010 Statistics New Zealand held meetings in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin to update census data users.

We met with over 150 users across the country and provided them with information on:

  • the 2006 Census products and services review, including themes and feedback from census data users
  • quality improvements and initiatives started so far for 2011 Census data, including key changes to the questionnaires, classifications, and other processes
  • a high-level overview of the planned 2011 Census products and services
  • the key benefits of the 2011 Census products and services mix
  • what the census programme is planning in the build-up to census day, Tuesday, 8 March 2011
  • a progress update on the 2016 Census.
