Statistical standard for iwi: consultation and research findings and recommendations

Together with Māori and government agencies, we have been leading a review of the statistical standard for iwi. Driving the review was the need to understand whether the existing standard was meeting the needs of Māori and users across the Official Statistics System. This is the first review of the standard since its implementation in 1994.

See:

Discussion of findings from the 2016 review of the statistical standard for iwi draws together a series of work undertaken as part of the review process including consultation with Māori and the public, a literature review of Māori groupings, and interviews with key government agencies.

The findings and feedback from working group members informed the Recommendations from the 2016 review of the statistical standard for iwi. The Government Statistician has approved the recommendations. Key recommendations include developing a framework and creating separate standards for Māori identity groupings (eg, iwi, hapū, marae, and non-kinship groups) in the future, as well as prioritising the revision of the standard for iwi to ensure its relevance.

We are now working with Māori advisors and key government agency representatives to revise the statistical standard for iwi and to develop a framework for Māori identity groups. Before finalising the standard, we will be seeking feedback on the draft standard and approval from the Government Statistician. The next step will be further consultation early next year around the proposed changes to the standard, which includes criteria for inclusion into the classification. Following on from that we will refresh the classification list of iwi groups from June 2017. We anticipate the release of the revised statistical standard for iwi by the end of June 2017.
