Today is Census Day in New Zealand.I like census day. It’s orderly. Things are properly categorised. It gives us lots of data to look at.

I was quite disappointed when the regular census, scheduled for two years ago, was postponed because of some Not At All Dull earthquakes.

It’s reassuring to have this nice slice of dull ordinariness back with us.
