Usual residence five years ago
Description

Usual residence five years ago is a person’s usual residence on 5 March 2013, which may be different to their current usual residence (6 March 2018). For the 2018 Census, this is not derived from a census question but by linking of 2018 Census respondents (usual residence in 2018) to their 2013 Census record (usual residence in 2013). A respondent is classified as being overseas five years ago if they arrived in New Zealand less than five years ago.
