The next census is coming. It will be held in early 2023, with Census Day Tuesday 7 March 2023.
The census is a nationwide survey that happens every five years to understand more about life in Aotearoa New Zealand and how it is changing.
Iwi, community groups, local and central government, and businesses use census data to make decisions about funding and providing services that affect you, your whānau, and your community.
By taking part in the census, you help create a better understanding of your community and what it needs.
