On April 29 Stats NZ announced that the 2018 Census dataset would be released on September 23 and outlined some expectations about the quality of the file that would be released. This talk will summarise this material and explain the methods used to create the file. If you use Census data and want to understand more about it, then this will be an important session for you!
