Derived from the Census question:
'How is each person in the household related to you?'
This data describes the household structure Māori live in, particularly in terms of the extent that different family groups make up the household. This can be related to housing availability and affordability as well as social and cultural preferences for certain living arrangements.
The data in these tables shows the number of individuals living in each household type, rather than the number of households. Household data excludes people temporarily absent from their usual residence on census night.
