This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 08 Apr 2020.

These meshblocks are used as a basis to build the electoral population for each electorate. We calculated the electoral populations from the 2018 Census data using the formula specified in the Electoral Act 1993 and then apply two confidentiality rules: suppression of all unrounded counts below six (displayed as: ‘-999’) and random rounding to base three. Since the electoral populations of each meshblock are randomly rounded, the count for each meshblock could be different to the raw total by up to two when compared with the total electoral population for meshblocks from another source.

Data is provided with tohutō/macrons (UTF-8 format). To support users with the compatibility of the data and the applications they might be using, additional fields are also provided in ASCII format.

Meshblocks, which aggregate to form electorates, are updated annually by Stats NZ. The 2020 electorate boundaries reflect a number of minor technical adjustments to meshblock boundaries, not involving population i.e. to follow the correct line of a river or road. The adjustments are visible in a small number of land and coastal areas where electorate boundaries otherwise unchanged between 2014 and 2020 do not exactly align.

Note: This dataset contains the meshblock MB2020_V2_00 (version 2), a major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries as at 17 April 2020. This version contains 53,582 meshblocks, or an additional two when compared with MB2020_V1_00 (excluding the 16 non-digitised meshblocks). This version reflects changes made to meshblocks for the 2019/2020 Representation Commission.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 07 Dec 2020.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released statistical area 1 (SA1) boundaries for 2021 as defined by Stats NZ. This version contains 29,910 SA1 categories.

SA1s were introduced as part of the Statistical Standard for Geographic Areas 2018 (SSGA18) which replaced the New Zealand Standard Areas Classification (NZSAC92). SA1 is a new output geography that allows the release of more detailed information about population characteristics than is available at the meshblock level.

Built by joining meshblocks, SA1s have an ideal size range of 100–200 residents, and a maximum population of about 500. This is to minimise suppression of population data in multivariate statistics tables. SA1s either define or aggregate to define SA2s, urban rural areas, territorial authorities, and regional councils. Some SA1s that contain apartment blocks, retirement villages, and large non-residential facilities have more than 500 residents.

This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.

The SA1 classification can also be downloaded from the Stats NZ classification and concordance tool Ariā.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released regional council constituency boundaries at 1 January 2019, clipped to the coastline. This clipped version has been created for map creation/cartographic purposes and may not fully represent the official full extent boundaries. Constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes. If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the region are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies. Constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are defined at meshblock level.

This dataset is the definitive set of statistical area 1 (SA1) inside centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released statistical area 1 (SA1) boundaries as at 1 January 2019 as defined by Stats NZ.

The "inside" centroid is a point which always falls inside each SA1 polygon as this is often desirable in some users cases. The placement of the point is typically in the widest part of the polygon. The algorithms used are proprietary to ESRI and are related to label placement.

Note that the "inside" centroid is NOT always the same as the center of gravity ("true" centroid) of the polygon as in some situations the true centroid may fall outside the Meshblock geometry. The dataset contains the EASTING and NORTHING attributes of the centroid point in NZGD2000 New Zealand Transverse Mercator (EPSG:2193) and LATITUDE and LONGITUDE of the centroid point in decimal degrees in WGS1984 (EPSG:4326) projection.

This dataset contains occupied and unoccupied private dwelling counts from the 2006, 2013, and 2018 Censuses, with percentage changes between the 2013 2018 Censuses, by territorial authority and Auckland local board areas.

These territorial authority and Auckland local board area boundaries extend to the 12 mile limit and are as at 1 January 2018, for further information see Territorial Authority Local Board 2018 (generalised).

This data uses fixed random rounding to protect confidentiality, for further information see 2018 confidentiality rules.

Note: the 2018 Census counted fewer dwellings in the Marlborough district than existed at census time. This was mainly in the Marlborough Sounds. If you intend to use dwelling counts at this geography, please contact info@stats.govt.nz for more information.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 05 Dec 2018.

This dataset is the major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries concorded to higher geographies at 1 January 2019. This version contains 53,596 meshblocks, including 16 with empty or null geometries (non-digitised meshblocks).

This Meshblock Higher Geographies 2019 (generalised) file is a correspondence, or concordance, which relates meshblocks to larger geographic areas or 'higher geographies'. This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.

The higher geographies contained in this concordance are: community board (CB2019), constituency (CON2019), Māori constituency (MCON2019), regional council (REGC2019), statistical area 1 (SA12019), statistical area 2 (SA22019), subdivision (TASUB2019), territorial authority (TA2019), urban rural (UR2019), urban rural indicator (IUR2019), and ward (WARD2019).

The following geographies were first introduced in 2018: statistical area 1 (SA1), statistical area 2 (SA2), urban rural (UR), and urban rural indicator (IUR). These new geographies are part of the Statistical Standard for Geographic Areas 2018 (SSGA18) which replaces the 1992 New Zealand Standard Areas Classification (NZSAC92). The statistical standard for geographic areas is to be used from 2018 (SSGA18). It defines the Stats NZ input and output geographic classifications and describes their primary purposes, and sets out requirements and guidelines for the creation and maintenance of statistical geographies. For further information on individual higher geographies, refer to their metadata.

These boundaries comprise the 65 general electorates released by the Representation Commission in April 2020. These boundaries will be used for the 2020 and 2023 general elections.

The Representation Commission is convened by the Surveyor-General, its role is to re-draw electorate boundaries to make sure each electorate has about the same number of people. We calculate the general electoral population, number of general electorates, and North Island and South Island electoral quotas using the formula specified in the Electoral Act 1993. When setting the boundaries, the Representation Commission also considers existing boundaries, communities of interest, the infrastructure that links communities (such as main roads), topographical features, and any projected variation in the population of those electorates during their existence.

Data is provided with tohutō/macrons (UTF-8 format). To support users with the compatibility of the data and the applications they might be using, additional fields are also provided in ASCII format.

Meshblocks, which aggregate to form electorates, are updated annually by Stats NZ. The 2020 electorate boundaries reflect a number of minor technical adjustments to meshblock boundaries, not involving population i.e. to follow the correct line of a river or road.
