Local Authority Census – information for participants

Why are you carrying out this census?

We carry out this census to collect annual information from local authorities, and make the combined statistics available, to:

  • provide information for publication of the Government Financial Statistics
  • help in the preparation of New Zealand’s national accounts, price indexes, and related statistics
  • help businesses, government, and other organisations in their planning and decision-making.

Who takes part? How did you select me?

All 78 local authorities and two council-controlled organisations are included in this census. These are the city, district, regional councils, and unitary authorities.

When do you carry out this census?

The Local Authority Census is carried out once every year.

How can I complete the questionnaire?

You’ll complete the Local Authority Census questionnaire by filling in the electronic (Excel) form.

Protecting confidentiality

We have high standards for keeping information private, secure, and confidential.

The information we collect is primarily used by Stats NZ and other government agencies to produce statistics and research to benefit New Zealand.

The Statistics Act 1975 allows Stats NZ to release detailed information about local authorities.

We do not identify individuals in published statistics or research.
