Statistics New Zealand census general manager Sarah Minson joined us at 1pm for a live chat on the census data released this morning.

Minson has spent the past eight years working on the 2006 and 2011/2013 censuses.

She discussed the main themes in the 2013 census data, which shows New Zealand's population is getting older, with the median age rising to 38, and more diverse.
