A Report on the 2006 Post-enumeration Survey

A Report on the 2006 Post-enumeration Survey carries background information and the main results from New Zealand’s third post-enumeration survey (PES).

The survey was conducted shortly after the 2006 Census of Population and Dwellings. Like the first two post-enumeration surveys in 1996 and 2001, its main aim was to provide information on the completeness of census coverage, that is, to gauge how many New Zealand residents were missed, or counted more than once, in the census.

Statistics New Zealand intends to draw upon the PES results to adjust the population base for deriving post-censal population estimates and demographic projections. Users of census and population data will find this report informative and useful.
