Te Ao Mārama 2016
Here is an updated collection of our statistics about Māori well-being and development from a Māori perspective. It is available in te reo Māori: Tirohia tēnei whārangi i te reo Māori.

‘Te ao mārama’ is a Māori concept relating to wisdom and understanding. It derives from the myth in which Tāne separated his Sky Father Ranginui and Earth Mother Papatuānuku to create ‘te ao mārama’ or the world of light. This allowed Tāne and his brothers to grow and better understand the world around them.

Statistics New Zealand collected information relating to Māori well-being in the 2013 Te Kupenga Survey. Since 2014, our annual survey Tatauranga Umanga Māori provides information about economic activity of Māori authorities.

Tatau Kahukura: Māori Health Chart Book 2015 (3rd Edition)
Presents a snapshot of the health of Māori compared with non-Māori. The chart book presents key indicators relating to the socioeconomic determinants of health, risk and protective factors for health, health status, health service use and the health system.


Statistics New Zealand

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

The first release of information from Te Kupenga 2013 provides overview statistics on four areas of Maaori cultural well-being:

  • wairuatanga (spirituality)
  • tikanga (Maaori customs and practices)
  • te reo Maaori (the Maaori language)
  • whanaungatanga (social connectedness).

Maaori Health Plan Monitoring tool
A new web-based monitoring tool to improve access to health performance information.

Maaori health information on all 20 DHBs will include performance trends, rankings against other DHBs, disparities between Maaori and non-Maaori, as well as links to seminars on 'best practice' by the nation's top performers.

CPHR : Maaori Health statistics
The website is a collaboration between Massey University’s Centre for Public Health Research, Te Kete Hauora, the Ministry of Health’s Maaori Health Business Unit and Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare. It aims to become a repository for public health data from a wide range of organisations, via a series of interactive maps. The site provides data at DHB levels and in some cases presents time series charts.

CPHR: Haurora deaths
Compares deaths across a range of causes between Maaori and non-Maaori. Where age standardisation is used, age is standardised to the Maaori population from the 2001 New Zealand Census Comparison of death rates in this atlas include: all causes, cancer (colorectal, lung and female breast), diabetes, circulatory disease (ischaematic heart disease and stroke), external causes (accident including transport accident),respiratory disease (including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -COPD) and suicide.

CPHR: Environmental health indicators
Information and environmental factors and health effects at Territorial Authority, Regional Council and District Health Board level.

The Hub
 The Hub is a one-stop-shop for government research on education, health and wellbeing, crime and justice, families, children and young people, and other social science issues.You can search by keyword, topic or agency from the top of each page. The Hub currently hosts research from the Ministries of Social Development, Justice, Health and Education, and the Social Policy Evaluation and Research Unit (Superu).

Wiki New Zealand health data clearinghouse
 Wiki New Zealand sources data from other organisations, including corporations, public repositories, government departments and academics.
We import that data into a powerful open source database, we carefully validate it and standardise it. We then make the data available in a series of standardised forms, both human and machine-readable, with rich metadata about the sources, licensing and datatypes.

Health Roundtable
We are a non-profit membership organisation of health services across Australia and New Zealand. We exist to:
Provide opportunities for health executives to learn how to achieve Best Practice in their organisations
Collect, analyse and publish information comparing organisations and identifying ways to improve operational practices
Promote interstate and international collaboration and networking amongst health organisation executives

Members are provided with a wide range of documents and presentations that identify innovations in health care practice, as well as comparative information and meeting notes. Any staff member from a member health service can access these reports by registering for access with their health service email address.

89 health service organisations across Australia and New Zealand are currently members of The Health Roundtable. Many health service members have multiple facilities. A total of 155 facilities currently provide data for comparative analysis.

Funded by the Ministry of Health, The aim of this project was to answer the question, How can access to health services be improved for Māori? The focus of the project was on cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, and there were three objectives.

Increase the health sector’s understanding of the issues affecting Māori access to health services
Provide an evidence base for action to improve access to health services for Māori
Provide solutions to improve access to health services for Māori
In addition to literature reviews on interventions to improve access to diabetes, cardiovascular and cancer health care, key informants were interviewed for their views about improving access to health services. Individual reports were produced in each area, as well as an overall research report on improving Māori access to health care
