VisualCensus2013 User Guide
Welcome to VisualCensus13 (VC13). It’s been seven years since the previous census took place, and a lot has changed in our nation’s demographics. VisualCensus13 will enable you to visualise what these changes look like, and assist you with planning for the future.
VC13 takes the information released by Statistics New Zealand, and formats it into ready-to-use files for use in your GIS. Attribute information is combined with mapping files to enable you to create maps of interesting themes – whether it’s ethnicity, age, home ownership, occupations or how people travel to work.
There are a few things you should know about VC13 before you get started. This document is designed to highlight these for you.
