Data and Statistics Bill

NZNO invites your feedback on proposed new data and statistics legislation

The bill seeks to repeal the Statistics Act 1975. It intends to:

  • recognise the Crown’s responsibility to consider and provide for Māori interests in data and statistics
  • enable more effective system leadership
  • strengthen and future-proof the framework for collecting data for official statistics
  • modernise the framework for accessing data for research
  • continue to provide appropriate safeguards and protections to ensure public trust and confidence in the collection and use of data for official statistics and research.

Further information can be found here.

Please send feedback to by 15 December 2021.
