In New Zealand, internal migration is typically the most difficult component of net migration’s contribution to subnational population change to measure. Internal migrants are not required to register their moves with any agency. The five-yearly census of population and dwellings has included a question on “usual residence five years ago” since 1971, which has been the authoritative data source for measuring internal migration. However, the infrequency of the collection (every five years), and the ‘snapshot’ nature of a transition-based measure are significant limitations. Other measures of annual subnational population change, such as the Treasury’s Insights tool, provide estimates of internal migration flows between TAs by using linked administrative data. Their approach identifies a set of decision rules for assigning location to individuals, based on a quality assessment of a wide range of address sources in the IDI (Where we come from, where we go). The TA location transitions provide the basis for deriving statistics of annual internal migration as demonstrated by the Insights tool. The data published with this report is the first series we’ve created by estimating all internal migration flows using a movement-based approach. From individuals’ unique address notification histories in key data sources, the paired origin and destination locations defined individuals’ movements. Traditionally, we combined change of address data from a range of administrative sources with other information on international migration to produce estimates of net migration for broad subnational areas. Now, we can derive direct estimates of movements from address histories from the anonymised unit record information of address notifications in the IDI. This gives a better understanding of people’s movements within New Zealand. Internal migration information is of great interest to local and central government, businesses, and communities. Churn and turnover of populations at local area level is one of the contributors of subnational population change, in both size and characteristics.

This dataset is a high definition (HD) version of the annually released meshblock boundaries concorded to higher geographies as at 1 January 2018 as defined by Stats NZ. This version contains 53,596 meshblocks, including 16 with empty or null geometries (non-digitised meshblocks).

This Meshblock Higher Geographies 2019 file is a correspondence, or concordance, which relates meshblocks to larger geographic areas or 'higher geographies'. This 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.

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.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.

For further information on individual higher geographies, refer to their metadata.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released territorial authority boundaries for 2021 as defined the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission and maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 68 categories.

A territorial authority is defined under the Local Government Act 2002 as a city or a district council. There are 67 territorial authorities in New Zealand. Some territorial authority boundaries are coterminous with regional council boundaries but there are several exceptions. An example is Taupo District, which is split between four regions, although most of its area falls within the Waikato Region. Territorial authorities are defined at meshblock, statistical area 1 (SA1) and statistical area 2 (SA2) levels.

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

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.

MB2018_V1_00_Centroid_Inside is the inside centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries as at 1 January 2018.The "inside" centroid is a point which always falls inside each meshblock 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.

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.
