National Party statistics spokesperson Simon Watts has expressed concern that Stats NZ is unlikely to achieve its goal of receiving responses from at least 90% of the population for this year’s census. Although the Minister of Statistics, Deborah Russell, believes it is too early to make such a prediction. Stats NZ reported that, as of 9am on Monday, 4,408,894 people had returned their Census forms, representing an 86% response rate, but there is still time for people to complete them.The government has extended the deadline until June, and people who do not complete their census may face a fine too. The collection of data from the Census is important for government decision-making. The 2023 Census is expected to be an improvement over the 2018 Census, despite the lower response rates.
