Default New Zealand censuses

Could someone explain to me the situation as regards New Zealand censuses? I don't seem to be able to find any information about them.

Thanks, Kate.

I still can't see anything about their being available on line, either as transcriptions or images.

Does this help explain anything, Elizabeth?

I remember trolling through reams of NZ electoral roll entries somewhere, probably on Ancestry.

Thanks, Janet, that's useful information. I shall check out Ancestry.

I take it that NZ census aren't available. I vaguely remember seeing that after taking the information they shredded them!! I don't know if that is true.

No censuses online, but the electoral rolls are useful:

You may also find useful information in old NZ newspapers:

Thanks, Mary. I'm a dab hand at the BMDs now, but I didn't know about the electoral rolls until Janet and you pointed me in the right direction.

No NZ census available unfortunately. I think that something happened to them - shredding or a fire, I can't remember.

Can I help with anything?
