Madison – Taupo, Waikato – About the Role… As a Field Officer, you will be responsible getting out and about in your community, helping to ensure the 2018 Census is a success. From checking and updating address information, delivering materials to households, to collecting census forms, interacting with people and keeping records of your experiences – no two days will be the same in this assignment. About the Census… The census is the official count of how many people and dwellings there are in New Zealand. By asking everyone to complete a set of questions about themselves and their households we capture a snapshot of who is living in and visiting New Zealand. Census information is used by central government, councils, community groups, iwi, and business to make informed decisions and plan for the future. As New Zealand society changes and develops so must the census. The 2018 Census will be different; with new ways of contacting people about the census and how we collect the data.
