Stats NZ updates iwi statistical standard
29 September 2017
Stats NZ today released an updated iwi statistical standard, which guides how to collect, organise, and describe iwi information.
Stats NZ Kaihautū Rhonda Paku said the new standard better reflects contemporary needs for and about Māori.
Ms Paku said the iwi statistical standard and classification (list) had needed a review to ensure they remain relevant for today’s data needs.
“The review has been a carefully considered process at every stage, and I want to acknowledge everyone who has provided us with feedback and contributed to the discussions, from iwi, Māori, government agencies, councils, and the public during consultation in 2016 and 2017.”
The new standard will be used in the 2018 Census and by other government agencies collecting iwi information in survey, administrative, and other data collections.
“Iwi statistics using the standard help iwi, government, and other organisations in planning, monitoring, and decision-making,” Ms Paku said.
“It is expected that the changes will result in more data becoming available for and about iwi and iwi-related groups.”
Key changes include new conditions for including iwi in the classification (list of iwi), an updated purpose, and new approaches for reporting iwi information. The standard also includes an updated and more inclusive classification of iwi and iwi-related groups.
Tatauranga Aotearoa he tikanga hōu tatau ā-iwi – te hunga pāpāho
29 September 2017
Kua tukua e Tatauranga Aotearoa i te rā nei, he tikanga hōu tatau ā-iwi, hei arahi i te kohi, i te whakahaere, i te whakamārama, i ngā pārongo ā-iwi.
I kī a Rhonda Paku, Kaihautū o Tatauranga Aotearoa, he pai ake te whakaatu a te tikanga hōu nei, i ngā hiahiatanga o nāianei mā te Māori, mō te Māori.
I kī anō a ia, kua tae kē ki te wā me arotake te rārangi ā-iwi, kia hāngai ki ngā kohinga tatauranga o nāianei tonu.
Hei tāna,“Ko ia wāhanga o te arotake i āta whakaarohia, ā, e mihi atu ana ahau ki te katoa i urupare mai, i kuhu iho ki ngā kōrero, mai i te iwi Māori, ki ngā tari kāwanatanga, ki ngā kaunihera, me te iwi whānui, i te wā o ngā whiringa kōrero o 2016 me 2017.
Ka whakamahia e te Tatauranga 2018 me ētahi atu tari kāwanatanga, e kohi ana i ngā pārongo ā-iwi mō ngā kohinga tirohanga, whakahaere, me ērā atu kohinga tatauranga.
“Ko ngā tatauranga ā-iwi e whakamahi ana i te tikanga hōu, he āwhina tēnei i te iwi, i te kāwanatanga me ētahi atu rōpū, ki te whakatakoto, tirotiro, me te whakatau kaupapa.”
“Ko te tumanako, inā kua whakarerekētia, ka huhua ake ngā raraunga mā te iwi, mō te iwi, tae atu ki aua rōpū e hono ana ki te iwi.
Ko ētahi tino rerekētanga e pā ana ki te whakauru i te iwi ki te rārangi ā-iwi, ko te whakahōu i te whāinga, me te kimi huarahi hōu hei whakaatu i ngā pārongo ā-iwi. Kei roto anō hoki i te tikanga hōu nei he whāinga hōu, mō ngā iwi me ō rātou rōpū.
