Data from the Census of Population and Dwellings

Indicators using data from the Census of Population and Dwellings include the Census usually resident population.

Prioritised ethnicity was used to identify Māori individuals (any person who identified Māori as any of their ethnic groups) and non-Māori included people who had at least one valid ethnic response, none of which was Māori.

Households were classified as Māori if any usual resident was Māori. Households were counted if they were in private occupied dwellings.

People living in households included the population resident in permanent private households.

Standard Census definitions and forms can be found here.

Data on proportions of people were age-standardised to the 2001 Māori population.

Data from Te Kupenga 2013

Te Kupenga 2013 was a post-census survey of individuals who identified with Māori ethnicity or Māori descent in the 2013 Census. The target population was the usually resident Māori population of New Zealand, living in occupied private dwellings on the 2013 Census night and aged 15 years or older. The data was collected during June to August 2013.

All estimates of numbers, percentages, and confidence intervals for data presented from Te Kupenga were calculated by Statistics New Zealand. The estimates of numbers of people in the DHB were rounded to the nearest five hundred in order to provide a more appropriate level of precision to the sample survey. All percentages were calculated from unrounded data.

Further details on the survey measures are available in the Te Kupenga 2013 Data Dictionary.
