It inquires about household finances, cigarette use, gender, and sexual orientation, which officials use to assess the country's needs in terms of policy, research, and services.

Coup De Main magazine’s Twitter account posed an inquiry about whether the Grammy-winning singer was required to take part due to his concert the same day the census was to be conducted. “Thank you for this important query,” the New Zealand census Twitter account responded. Every person in Aotearoa New Zealand on census night (Tuesday 7 March) must be included in the census, including tourists, guests, and former members of One Direction. Along with their reply, the census Twitter account featured an illustration of a sheet of paper titled “Census” on Styles's photo.

Styles is still in the middle of his world tour with stops in Sydney, Tokyo, Paris, and Madrid. His last performance will be on July 22 in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
