Delivering New Zealand's Next Census of Population and Dwellings

This initiative provides funding to deliver the next census in 2023 while moving New Zealand a step closer to its long-term goal of a future census based mainly on administrative data. The 2023 Census will provide an accurate picture of everybody in Aotearoa New Zealand, capturing demographics about population structure and rich data about our communities for the long-term benefit of all New Zealanders.

Persistent Child Poverty Measure

This initiative provides funding in a tagged contingency for the development and implementation of a panel survey, which will collect longitudinal data to enable Statistics New Zealand to develop and publish persistent child poverty measures. This is a requirement under the Child Poverty Reduction Act 2018. The Act requires the Government Statistician to define and report on persistent child poverty from the 2025/26 financial year, in addition to cross-sectional child poverty measures that are currently based on an expanded Household Economic Survey (HES) implemented in 2018.
