This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 29 Jul 2021.

This dataset is the definitive set of area unit boundaries for 2015 as defined by Statistics New Zealand.

Area units are aggregations of adjacent meshblocks with coterminous boundaries to form a single unbroken surface area (land and/or water).

The area unit pattern is revised once every five years in the year immediately before a Census of Population and Dwellings. There may also be changes in other years, in conjunction with local body boundary changes.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.
