Take, for example, the occupation counts, which tell us that there were 231 helicopter pilots and 948 interior designers in New Zealand on 6 March 2001.

Statistics New Zealand also acknowledges the excellent contribution of the large number of people involved in the 2001 Census. This includes the people who completed their forms on census night and those involved in planning, collecting, processing and using the information.

"Reliable statistics are vital to national planning and increase communities' awareness of issues in their local areas," said Government Statistician, Brian Pink. "The statistics from the 2001 Census have been compiled due to the goodwill, trust and cooperation of the census respondents."
