Online access

Two Oamaru organisations will provide computer access to help people to complete next month's national census online.

In order to help achieve the 60% online uptake that Statistics New Zealand is hoping for in Oamaru, Literacy North Otago on Ribble St, and the Oamaru Public Library on Thames St, will act as community access points to complete census forms on March 5.

Waitaki District Libraries manager Philip van Zijl said staff would provide guidance and support while ensuring people could complete the census confidentially.
