    Hopes key population data released from the Census will be able to influence Government policy

    Hopes key population data released from the Census will be able to influence Government policy


    Figures around population growth in certain areas, New Zealanders' age, and our ethnic breakdown were revealed in the first tranche of last year's census data.

    It showed we have an ageing population, and a boost in the number of people identifying as Maori.

    Deputy Chief Executive of Stats NZ Rachael Milicich says it will help the government know where to direct services.
