Rationale

Statistics New Zealand collects data on dwellings, households and families primarily through its five-yearly Census of Population and Dwellings. This data is used as a basis for demographic estimates of the same variables, with slightly different coverage than that of the census. Standard terms and definitions for measures (counts or estimates) of dwellings, households and families are needed, both to clearly define what is being measured (for example, coverage), and so that users are aware which population measure has been used when comparing data from different sources. It is also important to ensure that the presentation of dwellings, households and families statistics is uniform across outputs.
