After a postponement caused by the Feb. 22 earthquake in Christchurch, Statistics New Zealand has announced March 5, 2013, as the revised census date.

"The census of population and dwellings is a chance to find out a lot of information about who we are as a country and where and how we live," said government statistician Geoff Bascand. "The information people give us is used by many groups to decide how to provide the things New Zealanders need, like hospitals, schools and roads."

The deferral of the 2011 census makes the 2013 national stock take even more important, said Bascand. People and organisations that rely on the census statistics for their planning, want the latest information available.

"We've been working with these groups to identify other sources of information to help meet their needs until the next census," he said. "But we are aware of a keener interest than ever from government, business and communities for Statistics NZ to run a very successful 2013 Census. I am very confident that we can meet those expectations."
