    · owns the household accommodation, or
    · is legally responsible for the rent of the accommodation, or
    · has the private accommodation by virtue of his or her employment, or
    · has the private accommodation by virtue of some relationship to an owner who is not usually resident, or
    · any other responsible person.

    In non-private dwellings, the occupier/reference person (for the census) is the owner, manager, or person who is in charge on census night.

    In practice, in the 1996 Census, the occupier/reference person is the person who completed the dwelling questionnaire.

    1. Where there are no persons usually resident in the dwelling aged 15 years and over.
    2. Where there are persons aged 15 years and over temporarily absent from the dwelling and the combined income of persons aged 15 years and over present in the dwelling is less than $70,001.

    Total household income shows as "Not Specified" where any person aged 15 years or over who is usually resident in the dwelling does not specify any income, and the combined income of other persons (aged 15 years and over, usually resident in the dwelling) is less than $70,001.

Visitors from overseas in New Zealand on census night are included in the census count.
