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

  • 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 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.
