Meshblock to AU Correspondence Files from 1991 to 2001

Adam Ward made this Official Information request to Statistics New Zealand

The request was successful.

From: Adam Ward

Dear Statistics New Zealand,

On the webpage...

... the 2018 Geographic Area file provides a correspondence between:
- 2001 Meshblocks and 2017 Area Units
- 2006 Meshblocks and 2017 Area Units
- 2013 Meshblocks and 2017 Area Units

For research purposes I would like to obtain an additional Excel / txt file which provides a correspondence between:
- 1996 Meshblocks and 2017 Area Units
- 1991 Meshblocks and 2017 Area Units

Yours faithfully,

Dr Adam Ward

Hi Adam

Attached are the concordances files as requested for MB1991 to AU2017, and MB1996 to AU2017.

You will notice that some meshblocks are assigned to more than one area unit. This due to the meshblock having been split into two (or more) and assigned across different area units in a subsequent year.

For example:
MB1991 MB2017 AU2017 AU2017_Name
0044100 0044101 501613 Bay of Islands
0044100 0044102 501614 Kapiro

The following area units were not in the 1991 area unit classification and therefore are not assigned a meshblock in the 1991 concordance.

AU2017 AU2017_ NAME
666667 NZ Economic Zone
666668 Oceanic-Bounty Islands
666669 Bounty Islands
666670 Oceanic-Snares Islands
666671 Snares Island
666672 Oceanic-Antipodes Islands
666673 Antipodes Islands

Please email [email address] if you have any further questions.
