Having a hard time making use of the latest Census data in your GIS?

Having a hard time making use of the latest Census data in your GIS?

Michele Hosking from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council has converted all the Census 2013 data (downloaded from Statistics New Zealand) from spreadsheets into GIS tables which can be joined to either the meshblocks or the area units for the Census 2013 data.

We thought you may find a use for it so here is a link Download the Census data as an ArcGIS 10.1 geodatabase (on google drive >174MB). She’s included a readme file in the zip file which explains what she has done and where the data is.

As an added bonus the census information has been split into 2001, 2006 and 2013 data and into AreaUnit and Meshblock tables. Want even more? The NZ Deprivation Index is included as a table as well!
