This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 08 Apr 2020.

These meshblocks are used as a basis to build the electoral population for each electorate. We calculate the electoral populations using the formula specified in the Electoral Act 1993 and then apply two confidentiality rules: suppression of all unrounded counts below six (displayed as: ‘-999’) and random rounding to base three. Since the electoral populations of each meshblock are randomly rounded, the count for each meshblock could be different to the raw total by up to two when compared with the total electoral population for meshblocks from another source.

Data is provided with tohutō/macrons (UTF-8 format). To support users with the compatibility of the data and the applications they might be using, additional fields are also provided in ASCII format.

Meshblocks, which aggregate to form electorates, are updated annually by Stats NZ. The 2020 electorate boundaries reflect a number of minor technical adjustments to meshblock boundaries, not involving population i.e. to follow the correct line of a river or road. The adjustments are visible in a small number of land and coastal areas where electorate boundaries otherwise unchanged between 2014 and 2020 do not exactly align.

These boundaries comprise the seven Māori electorates released by the Representation Commission in April 2020. These boundaries will be used for the 2020 and 2023 general elections.

The Representation Commission is convened by the Surveyor-General, its role is to re-draw electorate boundaries to make sure each electorate has about the same number of people. We calculate the Māori electoral population, number of Māori electorates and electoral quota using the formula specified in the Electoral Act 1993. When setting the boundaries, the Representation Commission also considers existing boundaries, communities of interest (including iwi affiliations), the infrastructure that links communities (such as main roads), topographical features, and any projected variation in the population of those electorates during their existence.

These boundaries comprise the 65 general electorates released by the Representation Commission in April 2020. These boundaries will be used for the 2020 and 2023 general elections.

The Representation Commission is convened by the Surveyor-General, its role is to re-draw electorate boundaries to make sure each electorate has about the same number of people. We calculate the general electoral population, number of general electorates, and North Island and South Island electoral quotas using the formula specified in the Electoral Act 1993.
