This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 30 Nov 2016.
Wards were originally set up within any territorial authority with a population of 20,000. Wards are defined under the local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division, of the district of a territorial authority for electoral purposes. Ward boundaries are reviewed in the year immediately preceding the triennial local government elections. Wards are numbered based on their corresponding territorial authority. Each ward has a unique five digit number. The first three digits represent the territorial authority that the ward lies within. The following two digits are sequential, and represent the number of wards within a territorial authority.
