Census transformation – A promising future

This paper presents our progress on investigating options for transforming the New Zealand census, beyond the modernised 2018 Census. It recommends that Statistics NZ be directed to actively work towards a future census based primarily on government administrative data, supported by redevelopment of its household surveys.

To read the paper, download the printable PDF and tables from 'Available files'. If you have problems viewing the files, see opening files and PDFs.
