This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 22 Jul 2021.

This dataset is the definitive set of urban area boundaries for 2012 as defined by Statistics New Zealand.

Urban areas are statistically defined areas with no administrative or legal basis. Urban area populations are defined internationally as towns with 1000 people or more.

There is a three part hierarchal sub-division of urban areas into:

  • Main Urban Areas
  • Secondary Urban Areas
  • Minor Urban Areas

There is a major review of urban areas approximately every 20 years. Minor alterations can also occur as a result of requests from territorial authorities, general public, government organisations and statistics New Zealand output needs.

As at 1st July 2007, Digital Boundary data became freely available.

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

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 28 Jul 2021.

This dataset is the definitive set of area unit boundaries for 2012 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 each five years in the year immediately prior to the taking of a Census of Population and Dwellings. There may also be changes in other years, in conjunction with local body boundary changes.

As at 1st July 2007, Digital Boundary data became freely available.

This dataset is the definitive set of ward boundaries at 1 January 2012 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission, but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (who are the custodian). This version contains 258 categories.

Wards were originally set up within any territorial authority with a population of at least 20,000. Wards are defined under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from dividing a territorial authority for electoral purposes. Ward boundaries are reviewed in the year before the three-yearly local government elections.

This dataset is the definitive set of Community Board boundaries for 2011 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Statistics New Zealand, who are the custodian.

Community Boards are set up under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Their purpose is to administer the affairs of communities with populations not less than 1,500 within rural, urban or metropolitan districts of a territorial authority. Community boards and their boundaries are reviewed in the year immediately preceding the triennial local government elections.

This dataset is the definitive set of regional council boundaries for 2012 as defined by the Local Government Commission and/or the territorial authorities themselves but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (who are the custodian).

The region is the top tier of local government in New Zealand. There are 16 regions of New Zealand (Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the Local Government Act 2002). Regional council areas are based on water catchment areas. Regional councils are responsible for the administration of many environmental and public transport matters.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released regional council Māori constituency boundaries for 2021 as defined by the regional councils and/or Local Government Commission, and maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 20 categories.

This version contains 5 Māori constituencies, excluding area outside constituency. Māori constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes. Māori constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are created, based on population, to be the voting areas within councils. Māori constituencies are defined at meshblock level. If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.

Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons. The column name for those without macrons is suffixed ‘ascii’.

This dataset is the definitive set of Māori ward boundaries for 2021 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This clipped version has been created for map creation/cartographic purposes and so does not fully represent the official full extent boundaries. This version contains 68 categories.

The Local Electoral Act 2001 provides that Māori wards may be established in territorial authorities. The statutory provisions for establishing Māori wards are set out in sections 19Z to 19ZH of the Local Electoral Act 2001. The first Māori ward was established by representation review in 2019 and appears in the 2020 geographic boundaries released by Stats NZ. The first Māori ward to be created is Wairoa Māori ward (02901) in the Wairoa District. Māori ward boundaries are defined at meshblock level.

Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons. The name field without macrons is suffixed ‘ascii’.

This dataset was last updated on Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 01 Feb 2021.

This dataset is the definitive set of meshblock boundaries concorded to higher geographies for 2021. This version contains 53,598 meshblocks, including 16 with empty or null geometries (non-digitised meshblocks). This Meshblock Higher Geographies 2021 file is a correspondence, or concordance, which relates meshblocks to larger geographic areas or 'higher geographies'. The higher geographies contained in this concordance are: community board (CB2021), constituency (CON2021), Māori constituency (MCON2021), Māoriward (MWARD2021), regional council (REGC2021), statistical area 1 (SA12021), statistical area 2 (SA22021), territorial authority local board (TALB2021), territorial authority (TA2021), subdivision (TASUB2021), urban accessibility indicator (IUA2021), urban rural (UR2021), urban rural indicator (IUR2021), and ward (WARD2021).The following geographies were first introduced in 2018: statistical area 1 (SA1), statistical area 2 (SA2), urban rural (UR), and urban rural indicator (IUR) as part of the Statistical Standard for Geographic Areas 2018 (SSGA18) which replaced the 1992 New Zealand Standard Areas Classification (NZSAC92). The geography urban accessibility indicator (IUA) was introduced for the first time in MBHG 2021.Higher geography names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons, as applicable. Column names for those without macrons are suffixed ‘ascii’.For further information on individual higher geographies, refer to the individual geography’s metadata.This high definition (HD) version is the most detailed geometry, suitable for use in GIS for geometric analysis operations and for the computation of areas, centroids and other metrics. The HD version is aligned to the LINZ cadastre.
