2023 Census data is coming soon. Stats NZ will release the first look at census data at the end of May 2024, with much more to follow between October 2024 and August 2025.

In the months since the census collection, Stats NZ has been processing census responses to create a final census data set. That work includes things like:

✅ checking for and removing any duplicate forms
✅ using admin data to fill gaps in responses to produce the best data possible
✅ taking census responses and turning them into the kind of data everyone can use while maintaining the confidentiality of everyone who took part.
