2006 Census: Definitions and Questionnaires
Historical summary

The downloadable file (2006 Census: Historical Summary of the Scope of the Census) is a brief summary of the personal and dwelling questions that have been asked in European, Māori and general New Zealand censuses from 1916 to 2006. The table also has a column for pre-1916 censuses. When using the list, it is important to remember that the same personal questionnaire has only been issued to both Māori and others since 1951. When referring to earlier years, unless otherwise stated, the questions applied to both the European and Māori questionnaires.

The file is in Excel format. If you do not have access to Excel 97 or higher you may use the Excel file viewer to view, print and export the contents of this file.
