Census Timeline

We found out that New Zealand moved from having just 2 provinces to 6 provinces for the census in 1851.  Each province was governed by its own government, until 1877!

Emmanuel and Adam created this timeline that shows the Census movement since 1877 until 2004.  We were surprised how long it took for Maori to be given the same census questionnaire as the rest of the population!!
