This dataset was last updated on Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 01 May 2019.

This dataset is the definitive set of community board/local board boundaries for 2019 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission, and maintained by Stats NZ. This version contains 108 community boards and 21 Auckland local boards, excluding area outside community board. Community boards are set up under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Their purpose is to administer the affairs of communities with populations not less than 1,500 within rural, urban, or metropolitan districts of a territorial authority. A community board’s functions, powers, and duties are delegated at the discretion of its parent territorial authority and these may differ between community boards. Community boards and their boundaries are reviewed in the year before the three-yearly local government elections. Community boards are numbered based on their corresponding territorial authority. Each community board has a unique five-digit number. The first three digits refer to the territorial authority that the community board lies within. The following two digits are sequential, and represent the number of community boards within the territorial authority. For example, Tararua District (041) has two community boards numbered 04101 and 04102. The rest of the district is not represented by a community board and is coded 04199 (Area Outside Community).Some territorial authorities do not have community boards and, if they do, the community boards do not necessarily cover the whole territorial authority area.The following table lists the total number of community boards by year:Year Community board totals 2000 147 2001 147 2002 147 2003 147 2004 147 2005 144 2006 v1 144 2006 v2 144 2007 144 2008 143 2009 143 2010 143 2011 137 2012 137 2013 137 2014 130 2015 130 2016 130 2017 129 2018 129 2019 129 Local boards also fall within the community board classification. Local boards were introduced as part of the new local government arrangements for Auckland in 2010. Local boards share governance with a council’s governing body and each has complementary responsibilities, guaranteed by legislation. Local boards can propose bylaws and they gather community views on local and regional matters. Local legislation enacted in 2012 allows for the establishment of local boards in areas of new unitary authorities that are predominantly urban and have a population of more than 400,000. The boundaries of local boards cannot be abolished or changed except through a reorganisation process. There are 21 local boards in the Auckland Council.Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released regional council constituency boundaries at 1 January 2019 as defined by the regional councils and/or Local Government Commission, and maintained by Stats NZ. Constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes. If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the region are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies. Constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are defined at meshblock level.

This dataset is the definitive set of the meshblock (MB) inside centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries as at 1 January 2019.

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.

Meshblock 2019 (Centroid True) is the true centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released Meshblock (MB) boundaries for 2019.

The "true" centroid is the centre of mass of that polygon, such that if some flat substance of uniform thickness and density were cut into the shape of that polygon, then that object would balance at the centroid. The centroid is a useful way of summarizing the location of a set of polygons as points, particularly when used for comparative analysis.

Note that the centroid could potentially fall outside the meshlock polygon, depending on the shape of the polygon. 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. Non-digitised meshblocks cannot have a centroid.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 06 Dec 2018.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released meshblock boundaries at 1 January 2019. Stats NZ maintains an annual meshblock geography for collecting and producing statistical data. This allows data to be compared over time. A meshblock is the smallest geographic unit for which statistical data is collected and processed by Stats NZ. A meshblock is defined by a geographic area, which can vary in size from part of a city block to a large area of rural land. Each meshblock borders on another to form a network covering all of New Zealand, including coasts and inlets and extending out to the 200-mile economic zone. Meshblocks are added together to build up larger geographic areas such as statistical area 1 (SA1), statistical area 2 (SA2), and urban rural. They are also used to define electoral districts, territorial authorities, and regional councils. The digital geographic boundaries are defined and maintained by Stats NZ. Meshblocks cover the land area of New Zealand, the water area to the 12-mile limit, the Chatham Islands, Kermadec Islands, sub-Antarctic islands, off-shore oil rigs, and Ross Dependency.

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.

There are 16 meshblocks not held in digitised form.

This dataset is the major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries concorded to higher geographies at 1 January 2019. This version contains 53,596 meshblocks, including 16 with empty or null geometries (non-digitised meshblocks).

This Meshblock Higher Geographies 2019 (generalised) file is a correspondence, or concordance, which relates meshblocks to larger geographic areas or 'higher geographies'. This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.

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