Census 2013 logo

Do you know about our diverse ethnic population? Do you know how they are changing?

Statistics New Zealand, in collaboration with the Office of Ethnic Affairs, is holding free information seminars on the 2013 census results.

These seminars will be held between 6 - 21 October providing opportunities for the participants to hear about New Zealand's changing demographic landscape. The seminars will also include interactive workshops on how to navigate and  interpret census data on different ethnic groups.

The 2013 Census is the first time Statistics New Zealand has published profiles for over 100 different ethnic groups in New Zealand .

Census data can be used by community and ethnic groups in many different ways, including understanding population numbers to help with funding proposals; developing programmes and services for certain age groups; settling new migrants in communities with people from similar origins, as well as promoting the use and value of using census information.  

Registration is open now for those who wish to attend these informative seminars. Please check out the dates, venue and time for the presentations in a city near you.

What will we be talking about?

  • Quick overview of the Census
  • Information on different ethnic groups in New Zealand
  • What information is available from the 2013 Census
  • How you can use the Census data

What will we cover in the interactive sessions?

  • Navigate the Census pages on Statistics NZ website
  • Access information about your own ethnic group

If you have an electronic device (Laptop or tablet) please bring it along so that you can explore our website during the interactive sessions.
