Previous work by the Census Transformation programme identified information requirements for and about Māori that a census must provide, regardless of how the census is conducted in the future. Essential census requirements that are specific to Māori are: Māori ethnicity, Māori descent, iwi, and te reo Māori (the Māori language).

In this paper we investigate the potential for administrative sources to provide this information. For three of these variables (Māori ethnicity, Māori descent, and iwi) we compare data from the 2013 Census with information from the administrative data sources available in Statistics NZ’s Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI).
