Te Kupenga 2013 questionnaire
 Te Kupenga means fishing net. The late Pumi Taituha (Tainui) likened the gathering of statistics to the gathering of fish using a kupenga. The name Te Kupenga likens the survey to a net. The data and the knowledge is korero or food. The kai sustains and feeds the people so that they may live well. Good data and knowledge also sustains and feeds the people so that they may live well.

Te Kupenga was a bilingual survey that could be answered in English or te reo Māori. The questionnaire document is in a bilingual format with the English and te reo Māori questions presented side-by-side.
