Cascading Style Sheets

Statistics New Zealand uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) throughout the site to style web pages. The use of CSS means that web pages are smaller in size, and more accessible to all browsers, especially less common browsers like screen readers (often used by visually impaired people) and handheld devices with small screens.
To view the site with CSS, you will need a browser that supports CSS level 2 or greater.

Unfortunately, many older browsers don't support the CSS standard properly, and may fail to render web pages correctly, leaving them "funny looking", and occasionally unreadable. While we are aware of this problem, we have a policy of not writing CSS that only works in specific browsers—we must write CSS as per the CSS standard, which is designed to be used by all browsers.
Other browsers that simply choose not to support CSS will render plain HTML and should not have any readability problems.

Information about changing the font size can be found on the Technical help page.


Many of our web pages use JavaScript. Where possible, web pages have been made to work without JavaScript, although some functionality may be lost. When a non-Javascript version is not available, it is usually because the functionality can not be reproduced without using JavaScript.

Information about enabling JavaScript can be found on the Technical help page.
