This dataset was last updated on Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 29 Jun 2020.
This dataset is the definitive version of annually released statistical area 2 (SA2) boundaries concorded to higher geographies for 2020 as defined by Stats NZ. this version contains 2,255 categories.
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). For more information on the individual higher geographies, refer to each geography’s metadata.
SA2s were introduced as part of the Statistical Standard for Geographic Areas 2018 (SSGA2018) which replaced the New Zealand Standard Areas Classification (NZSAC1992). The SA2 geography replaces the (NZSAC1992) area unit geography.
Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons, as applicable. Column names for those without macrons are suffixed ‘ascii’. For further information on individual higher geographies, refer to each geography’s metadata.
This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.
Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.
