The urban/rural profile classification has been developed specifically for use in the urban/rural profile analytical report, and is not an official classification. The urban/rural profile classification was developed to be consistent with the standard Statistics New Zealand classification of urban and rural areas at the broadest level. For more information regarding the classification see Defining Urban and Rural New Zealand.
The available files provide concordances between standard geographical classifications and the urban/rural profile classification.
The downloadable files are in Microsoft Excel 2000 format(s). If you do not have access to Excel 2000 or higher you may use the Excel file viewer to view, print and export the contents of this file.
