Limitations of the data
Regions are territorial authority groupings that approximate regional council areas. Where territorial authorities span more than one regional council area, a territorial authority has been fully included in the region it is mainly in.
Changes to data collection/processing
New Zealand area data is not rebased when boundary changes occur. All data uses territorial authority boundaries which existed during the reference month.
