The census is the official count of how many people and dwellings there are in new Zealand. Census Day is Tuesday 6 March 2018.
In late February, you will get a letter that lets you choose how you’ll take part this year, either online, or by paper if you prefer.
Stats NZ are aiming to collect most of the information online. If you want help to do your census online, but need some assistance, SeniorNet is available to help.
Between Wednesday 28 February and Friday 9 March, SeniorNet will provide guidance and free computer use for people over 50 at learning centres across the country. Find a learning centre in Canterbury here
