The New Zealand Atlas of Population Change is part of a broader research programme looking at the changing composition of New Zealand's population: Capturing the Diversity Dividend of Aotearoa/New Zealand (CaDDANZ).

The project’s main objective is to assist New Zealand to better prepare for, respond to, and celebrate, an increasingly diverse population. The focus of the Atlas is the provision of maps illustrating New Zealand’s spatial diversity across a broad range of variables. The underlying data are drawn from research projects which have used geo-coded data and whose research teams have made them available. In this sense the New Zealand Atlas of Population Change differs from the thematic mapping of raw data by Statistics New Zealand and other organisations in that it is accompanied by supporting research.

Researchers generating geo-coded data are warmly invited to have their data mapped and included on the website, with references or links to their reports and publications. The project is ongoing and data will be added as they become available.
