Upper Hutt City

Notes - geography

Census geography

Census data are available at a variety of different geographic levels, for example, Region; Territorial Authority; Area Unit and Meshblock (a small local unit of 10-100 households). Often Census data geography doesn't match actual 'communities', 'suburbs' or 'service catchments' needed for effective decision making. While individual meshblocks are small enough to be very useful, only limited data are available at this detailed level, and they need to be aggregated into higher level meaningful units.

The Community Profile provides population data for the Upper Hutt City and associated suburbs/localities, aggregated from Meshblocks for the Census years: 2013, 2006 and 2001.


Upper Hutt City geography

The suburbs and localities in the Community Profile tables are aggregations of whole 2013-Census meshblock geography. While the meshblocks used to collect Census data in 2006 and 2001 differed a little from these, Statistics NZ have concorded the older datasets to the most current meshblock boundaries.

Suburbs and small areas are defined such that they contain a minimum of 11 meshblocks and 543 people in every Census year. This avoids any complications caused by confidentiality rules imposed by Statistics NZ. They are designed to match official suburb/locality boundaries as close as possible, and represent geographic areas which people can relate to on the ground. They have been agreed to with the local authority as representing logical communities within the area.

The small areas used in profile.id do NOT necessarily match up to Statistics NZs “Area Unit (AU)” boundaries, though some may coincide. Some will be larger than Area Units, while others will represent a more detailed breakdown within Area Unit boundaries. Some areas may cross Area Unit boundaries.
