Tenure of household
Tenure of household refers to the nature of the occupancy of a household in a private dwelling, at the time of the survey. Tenure of household seeks to determine if the household owns the dwelling, holds it in a family trust or does not own the dwelling, and whether payment is made by the household. It does not refer to the tenure of the land on which the dwelling is situated.

There are a total of 73 territorial authorities (15 cities and 58 districts). This updated total reflects the merge of Banks Peninsula District Council with Christchurch City Council in 2006.
When defining the boundaries of territorial authorities in 1989, the Local Government Commission placed considerable weight on the 'community of interest'. While the size of the community was a factor, the relevance of the components of the community to each other, and the capacity of the unit to service the community in an efficient manner, were the factors on which the commission placed most emphasis.
Territorial authorities are defined at meshblock and area unit level.

Total personal income
Information on total personal income received is collected from individuals in the 2006 Census. It represents the before-tax income for the respondent in the 12 months ending 31 March 2006. To overcome collection difficulties, total personal income is collected as an income range rather than an actual dollar income.
Total personal income is aggregated to form a number of other income outputs including:
- grouped total personal income
- total household income
- grouped total household income
- total family income
- grouped total family income
- combined parental income for couples with child(ren)
- grouped combined parental income for couples with child(ren)
- total extended family income
- grouped total extended family income.

Several census variables allow people to provide more than one response to the question. When a person has reported more than one response, they will be counted in each group they reported. In output tables this is presented as 'total responses', for example, ethnic group (total responses). This means that the total population will be greater than the usual subject population for that variable, as individuals may be counted more than once.
Variables that may be output on the basis of total responses are:
- ethnic group
- language spoken
- religious affiliation
- sources of personal income
- job search methods
- unpaid activities
- sources of family income
- sources of extended family income
- sources of household income
- fuel type used to heat dwellings
- access to telecommunication systems.
Multiple responses may also be able to be reported as a combination of response categories. For example, for outputs of ethnic group, categories may include European/Māori, Māori/Pacific peoples.
Refer also to 'grouped total responses' and 'single and combination'.
Type of couple
