Māori
  • More than one in seven people (14.6 percent) usually living in New Zealand in 2006 identified with the Māori ethnic group.
  • The Māori ethnic group increased by 39,048 people (7.4 percent) between 2001 and 2006, to total 565,329 people.
  • The Māori ethnic group has a relatively youthful population, with just over 1 in 3 Māori (35.4 percent) aged under 15 years in 2006. Fewer than 1 in 20 people of Māori ethnicity (4.1 percent) were aged 65 years and over.

For further QuickStats on Māori, go to QuickStats About Māori on the Statistics New Zealand website.

Note: People can choose to identify with more than one ethnic group, therefore figures may not sum to totals.
