All of us count Tatau tātou

All of us count Tatau tātou

Tuesday 7 March 2023 is Census Day Ko te Rātū 7 Poutūterangi 2023 te Rā Tatauranga

2023 Census is our chance to represent ourselves, our families, whānau, communities, and cultures.

Census gives us the power to create change that benefits all of us; in our lives, towns, schools, hospitals, and streets.

When we all take part in the 2023 Census, all of us count - Tatau tātou.

Why we all do the census, and why it matters Te take e mahi nei mātou i te tatauranga, te take hoki i hira ai

The census counts every person in Aotearoa New Zealand, and the places where they live or stay.

By doing the census, you help create a clearer picture of what you, your family, and your community need.

By knowing these needs, government agencies, councils, iwi, community groups and businesses can plan how to respond to them.

Your census answers, combined with everyone else's, help groups like these help us all.

Doing the 2023 Census Te whakaoti i te Tatauranga 2023

All of us count. And because the census is so important, the law requires us all to do it.

Every person who is in Aotearoa New Zealand on the night of Tuesday 7 March 2023 must take part in the 2023 Census.

Stats NZ will start delivering census forms and instructions in February 2023. You will be able to do the census online or on paper, in English or te reo Māori.

New in the 2023 Census He kaupapa hou mō te Tatauranga 2023

Many parts of the 2023 Census are the same as past censuses. But we are doing some things in new ways. These will make it easier to take part, and for us all to see ourselves in the data that is collected.

Keeping your information private, safe, and confidential Te tiaki i ō mōhiotanga kia tūmataiti, kia haumaru, kia matatapu hoki

Your information is important. So we keep it private, secure, and confidential.

We group your answers with everyone else’s answers before we release them. No one will be able to link you with your individual answers.

The more data we have about our communities, the more positive change we can make.
