This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 01 Dec 2022.

This dataset is the definitive version of the annually released meshblock boundaries concorded to higher geographies as at 1 January 2023. This version contains 57,539 meshblocks, including 16 with empty or null geometries (non-digitised meshblocks).

Statistical geographies introduced since 2018 are:

2018: statistical area 1 (SA1), statistical area 2 (SA2), urban rural (UR), 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),

2020: urban accessibility indicator (IUA),

2021: functional urban area (FUA), functional urban area indicator (IFUA), functional urban area type (TFUA),

2023: statistical area 3 (SA3).

The higher geographies contained in this concordance are: meshblock (MB), landwater (LANDWATER),

statistical area 1 (SA1),

statistical area 2 (SA2),

statistical area 3 (SA3),

urban rural (UR), urban rural indicator (IUR), urban accessibility indicator (IUA),

functional urban area (FUA), functional urban area indicator (IFUA), functional urban area type (TFUA),

territorial authority (TA), territorial authority and local board (TALB),

regional council (REGC), constituency (CON), Māori constituency (MCON),

High definition version

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

Macrons

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