Image, Statistics NZ collects data in different ways.

Statistics NZ collects data from individuals, households, and businesses using a survey questionnaire. We may ask you to take part in a face-to-face interview or a telephone interview with our staff – or to complete the questionnaire yourself, on a paper or electronic form.

We count on you – regional pamphlets

Collecting information through our surveys has enabled us to create the regional pamphlet We count on you that contains a snapshot of data from your region.

Data is from the 2013 Census, the Household Labour Force Survey, and the NZ General Social Survey.
