Regional census seminars were held between 23 October and 9 November 2007 in 25 locations throughout New Zealand. These seminars were very successful, with approximately 1,300 people attending.
The seminars were an opportunity for Statistics New Zealand to promote the range of information available from the census, how it can be used, and to provide instruction on how to access this information. They were also a chance to meet users of census data face to face, to respond to users' issues and queries and to highlight the planning underway for the 2011 Census.
Thanks to all those who attended the seminars, and for the interesting comments and questions that were raised. We recognise and appreciate your continuing role in promoting and disseminating census information to your local communities.
The slides presented at the 2006 Census seminars are available in the following sections for you to download. A demonstration of how to use Table Builder will also be available on the web by the end of the month.
These downloadable files are in Adobe Acrobat format. If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Reader you may download the reader to view or print the contents of these files.
