Government Statistician on Census 2018

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 30 April 2019

Kathryn talks with Government Statistician Liz MacPherson about Census 2018, which has been criticised as a "disaster" by some demographers.  No data has yet been released from the official survey, which was conducted online for the first time, and which had a low response rate. Statistics NZ says it is filling in the gaps with information from government records which it maintains is "real data about real people".
