Abstract

Te Kupenga collects information on a wide range of topics to give an overall picture of the social, cultural, and economic well-being of Maori in New Zealand. The survey also provides important information about the health of Maori language and culture.

Te Kupenga is a post-censal survey; collecting data on Maori economic, cultural and social outcomes in order to inform understanding of the economic, cultural and social outcomes of Maori, and the diversity within the Maori population.

Te Kupenga is Statistics Ne w Zealand’s first survey of Maori well-being. The survey gives an overall picture of the social, cultural, and economic well-being of Maori in New Zealand. Not only does it contain general social and economic well-being measures, but it introduces a number of new measures based on the Maori perspective of well-being.

Purpose

Te Kupenga is a multi-dimensional survey of Maori well-being. It takes a bi-cultural approach to measuring well-being. Not only does it contain general social and economic well-being measures, but it introduces a number of new measures based on a specific Maori perspepctive of well-being. Te Kupenga collects data on Maori economic, cultural and social outcomes in order to inform understanding of the economic, cultural and social outcomes of Maori, and the diversity within the Maori population.

Three important factors dri ve the need to gain more insight into the well-being of Maori. Firstly, with regard to cultural well-being, the Government has specific Treaty and legal obligations to protect and support the health of the Maori culture and language. Secondly, discussions with key Maori stakeholders have indicated that not only the government, but also Maori themselves have a strong interest in gaining more information about the well-being of their people. Underlying this view is a clear position within Maori leadership, which is in line with Ngata’s E Tipu E Rea framework, that Maori culture is fundamental to the well-being of Maori. The third driver to gain more insight into the well-being of Maori is to improve the contemporary assessment of needs within the Maori population. Although many indicators show improvement in well-being for Maori , official statistics still show considerable social and economic disparities between the Mao ri and New Zealand/ European ethnic groups.

Hence, there is a need to gain more insight into the well-being of Maori .

Significant events impacting this study series

Te Kupenga was conducted as a post-census survey.

Main users of the data

The data will be useful to a variety of stakeholders including Maori researchers, iwi leaders and leaders of Maori urban authorities, members of the wider Maori community, government agencies, businesses, and social groups.

Usage and limitations of the data

Te Kupenga data can be used to explore well-being and well-being outcomes for Maori, including cross domain analysis. The survey provides accurate national estimates, however, being a sample survey, it is subject to sample errors which get larger, as the estimate of interest gets smaller. This means, for example, that it should be possible to produce data for larger iwi (that will have relatively low sample errors).
