Māori Electoral District
Classification and coding process

Classification criteria

Māori electorate boundaries are defined at meshblock level.

The number of Māori electoral districts, and electoral populations for each electorate, is controlled by the criteria specified in the Electoral Act 1993. When setting the boundaries, the Representation Commission also considers communities of interest among the Māori people generally and members of Māori tribes, facilities of communications, topographical features, and any projected variation in the Māori electoral population of those districts during their existence.

Classification

Māori electoral district is a flat classification with eight categories.

The full classification is available in the 'Available files' section on the main page.
