2018 Census Primary and Intermediate schools' resources

19 February 2018

Stats NZ have produced 2018 Census Support Resources , which include resources for Primary and Intermediate schools in English and te reo Māori. The resources support the online census being held in in February/March. 

The resources are designed to support students to:

  • see the relevance of the data generated in their own lives
  • talk about data and the census at school and at home.

Student activities focus on:

  • understanding different people's perspectives about the census using persona cards and engaging in an exercise to convince people of the value of participating in the census
  • finding out about the languages spoken in New Zealand, including Māori language schools (kura kaupapa Māori)
  • comparing the world they are living in now with the world they will live in in 2038
  • supporting others to do the census is online.
