This is the definitive set of regional council boundaries for 2015 as defined by the Local Government Commission and/or regional councils themselves but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (the custodian) as at 1 January 2006.
The regional council is the top tier of local government in New Zealand. There are 16 regional councils in New Zealand (defined by Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the Local Government Act 2002). Eleven are governed by an elected regional council, while five are governed by territorial authorities (the second tier of local government) who also perform the functions of a regional council and are known as unitary authorities. These unitary authorities are Nelson City Council, and Gisborne, Tasman, and Marlborough District Councils. The Chatham Islands Council also performs some of the functions of a regional council, but is not strictly a unitary authority. Unitary authorities act as regional councils for the purposes of a wide range of legislative purposes. Regional councils are responsible for the administration of many environmental and transport matters such as land transport planning and harbour navigation and safety.
Regional Councils were established in 1989 after the abolition of the 22 local government regions. The Local Government Act 2002 requires the boundaries of regions to conform, as far as possible, to one or more water catchments. When determining regional boundaries, the Local Government Commission gave consideration to regional communities of interest when selecting which water catchments to include in a region. It also considered factors such as natural resource management, land use planning and environmental matters. Some regional council boundaries are coterminous with territorial authority boundaries but there are several exceptions. An example is Taupo District, which is geographically split between four regions, although most of its area falls within the Waikato Region. Where territorial local authorities straddle regional council boundaries, the affected area is statistically defined by complete area units. In general, however, regional councils contain complete territorial authorities.
The seaward boundary of any coastal regional council is the twelve mile New Zealand territorial limit.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 26 Sep 2019.

This dataset contains census usually resident population counts from the 2006, 2013, and 2018 Censuses by regional council. It contains counts by age group for the 2006, 2013, and 2018 Censuses, and percentage changes between the 2013 and 2018 Censuses.

The life-cycle age groups are: under 15 years, 15 to 29 years, 30 to 64 years, and 65 years and over.

These regional council boundaries extend to the 12 mile limit and are as at 1 January 2018, for further information see Regional Council 2018 (generalised).

This data uses fixed random rounding to protect confidentiality, for further information see 2018 confidentiality rules.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 18 May 2018.

This data is derived from ‘Sales by region in current prices - quarterly’ and ‘Estimated resident population for regional council areas, at 30 June(1996+)’.

The regional retail sales data has been aggregated to create data for calendar years(2012 - 2017), which have then divided by the population estimate for the relevant region and year, to create the per capita sales figures. Sales figures exclude GST.

The retail industry groups include the following ANSZIC06 industries (this data is for 2017 ONLY):

Motor vehicles, parts, and fuel retailing:
Motor vehicles and parts
Fuel

Supermarkets and specialised food retailing:
Supermarket and grocery stores
Specialised food
Liquor

Other retailing:
Department stores
Furniture, floor-coverings, houseware, textiles
Electrical and electronic goods
Clothing, footwear, and accessories
Recreational goods

RC_IUA 2018 contains urban accessibility classes by regional council geography. The dataset uses geographic boundaries (urban accessibility indicator (IUA), regional council (RC) as at 1 January 2018.

To download census and other data for this classification go to '2018 Census selected variables by Regional Council Urban Accessibility Indicator 2018'.

The urban accessibility (IUA) indicator measures the degree of urban influence New Zealand’s urban areas have on surrounding rural areas. It classifies the geographic accessibility of rural statistical area 1s (SA1s) and small urban areas according to their proximity, or degree of remoteness, to larger urban areas. The full classification is: 111 Major urban area 112 Large urban area 113 Medium urban area 221 High urban accessibility 222 Medium urban accessibility 223 Low urban accessibility 224 Remote 225 Very remote 331 Inland water 332 Inlet 333 Oceanic.

Regional council (RC) boundaries for 2018 are defined by the regional councils and/or Local Government Commission and maintained by Stats NZ. This version contains 16 regional councils. The full classification is: 01 Northland Region 02 Auckland Region 03 Waikato Region 04 Bay of Plenty Region 05 Gisborne Region 06Hawke's Bay Region 07 Taranaki Region 08 Manawatu-Wanganui Region 09 Wellington Region 12 West Coast Region 13 Canterbury Region 14 Otago Region 15 Southland Region 16 Tasman Region 17 Nelson Region 18 Marlborough Region 99 Area Outside Region.

The RC_IUA codes and names combine the RC and IUA codes and names, e.g. 01112 Northland Region_Major urban area.There are 140 classes. Some regional council areas do not contain all IUA classes but each region has at least four IUA classes.

This dataset was last updated on Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 29 Jun 2020.

This dataset is the definitive version of statistical area 2 (SA2) boundaries concorded to higher geographies as at 1 January 2019 as defined by Stats NZ.

This statistical area 2 higher geographies file is a correspondence, or concordance, which relates SA2s to larger geographic areas or 'higher geographies'. The higher geographies contained in this concordance are: territorial authority (TA) and regional council (REGC).

Statistical area 2 was created as 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.

Statistical area 2 (SA2) provides higher aggregations of population data than can be provided at the statistical area 1 (SA1) level. The SA2 geography aims to reflect communities that interact together socially and economically. In populated areas, SA2s generally contain similar sized populations.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007. This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.

This dataset contains the annually released regional council boundaries for 2021 as defined by the regional councils and/or Local Government Commission and maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian), clipped to coastline. This clipped version has been created for map creation/cartographic purposes and so does not fully represent the official full extent boundaries.

The regional council is the top tier of local government in New Zealand. There are 16 regional councils in New Zealand (defined by Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the Local Government Act 2002). Eleven are governed by an elected regional council, while five are governed by territorial authorities (the second tier of local government), who also perform the functions of a regional council and are known as unitary authorities.

Auckland Council unitary authority was formed in 2010, under the Local Government (Tamaki Makarau Reorganisation) Act 2009, replacing the Auckland Regional Council and seven territorial authorities.The seaward boundary of any coastal regional council is the twelve-mile New Zealand territorial limit. Regional councils are defined at meshblock and statistical area 2

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