The census is the official count of how many people and dwellings there are in New Zealand. By asking everyone to complete a set of questions about themselves and their household, Stats NZ can capture who is living in and visiting, New Zealand.

Ethnicity, culture and identity will be included in the priority 2 topic set. At this stage Stats NZ have not released a date for this to be available.
