Linking censuses: New Zealand longitudinal census 1981–2006

This report presents the results of linking data from six recent censuses (1981–2006), and makes recommendations for further work. The linking of census datasets to form a longitudinal data source will enhance our understanding of aspects of population change across time.

The report covers the linking of the 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, and 2006 Censuses into five linked pairs. In addition to census-to-census linking, we investigated a number of other developments. These included investigations into linking birth and death registration data to their nearest census, assessing the possibility of building a 1976–1981 census pair, and linking international migration data to the New Zealand longitudinal census (NZLC).
