NZ Census Day - We Count!

It's New Zealand Census Day 2013, the day when Statistics New Zealand takes a snapshot of how many people there are in New Zealand and where they live. Everyone must fill in a census form, or have one filled in for them, at the address where they stay the night tonight - even overseas visitors and babies. The 2013 census can also be filled in online instead of on the paper forms.
Information from the census is used to help make decisions about community services such as hospitals, schools, roads, public transport and recreational facilities. Census information is also used by councils, community groups and businesses to help plan for the future. 

The above information and more about the 2013 Census can be found on the Statistics New Zealand webpage here. You can also find out more about New Zealand Census here.
