The 2011 Census website was launched on 30 November 2009. It will host the online forms for both the 2010 Census Dress Rehearsal and 2011 Census. It also provides access to:
- general information about census
- an explanation of how to complete your census forms
- information about census job opportunities and a link to apply for jobs
- a range of other useful links.
For access to 2006 Census and other historical data, as well as information about content development for the 2011 Census refer to the Statistics New Zealand website.
The census dress rehearsal will be held on 9 March 2010. The census dress rehearsal is used to test procedures and forms to ensure that the 2011 Census is a success. People in 8,000 households over five districts (Auckland Central, Auckland West, Gisborne, Wellington Central, and Mid-Canterbury) will be asked to take part in the dress rehearsal.
The 2010 Census Dress Rehearsal provides the last opportunity to test and evaluate the census forms ahead of the 2011 Census. Some minor changes may occur as a result of dress rehearsal evaluation or as a result of the outcomes of previously scheduled Statistics New Zealand reviews of classifications and/or standards.
For more information about the census dress rehearsal go to the new 2011 Census website.
National population projections, 2009-base
2009-base national population projections were released on 27 October 2009. They provide an indication of future trends in the size and structure of New Zealand's population. Nine alternative series have been produced using different combinations of fertility, mortality and migration assumptions. Another five ‘what if?’ series were also produced to illustrate other scenarios of interest.
For a summary of results, commentary and methodology, see the Hot Off The Press information release.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all an enjoyable, relaxing and safe break.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! See you all in 2010.
