More than 100 public servants face job upheaval at Statistics New Zealand.

Statistics said yesterday it was going ahead with proposals to disestablish 103 positions and create 51 new ones. There would be a loss of 52 jobs.

Affected areas included administration, finance, human resources, information management, information technology, business analysis and marketing and communications.

Statistics chief executive Liz MacPherson said the restruc turing would ensure the organisation's corporate functions were "fit-for-purpose and sustainable".

She said the Budget, announced on Thursday, gave Statistics NZ funding towards the 2018 census, which would create up to 10 new jobs.
