How to use this site

The best way to navigate through the Iwi and Rohe Profiles is by using the menu on the left side of the screen.

Step 1Start by selecting ‘Summary statistics’ in the left-hand menu (underneath the label Iwi/Rohe profiles).

Step 2Select whether you want information based on your iwi or based on your rohe.
To do this, click the ‘Iwi profile’ or ‘Rohe profile’ tab in the middle of the screen.
Step 3Select your iwi or rohe of interest.
Do this by using the first drop-down menu in the middle of the screen.

Step 4Select your topic of interest using the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
For example, the ‘Summary statistics’ table that is already displayed shows general demographic information about your iwi or rohe, such as gender, age and employment status. The other more specific topics provide statistics about such things as education, languages spoken, smoking, income, household size and unpaid activities.

Step 5Select your benchmark/comparison population of interest.
If you would like to compare your data to that of a wider population, select your wider population of interest in the second drop-down menu in the middle of the screen labelled ‘Benchmark’.

What else does this site have to offer:

Population overview

The 'Population overview' pages contain a list of all Iwi and Rohe profiled on this site, their population and a comparison of size against regional and national benchmarks.

Iwi and Rohe profiles

The section of the menu underneath the heading 'Iwi and Rohe Profiles' contains the majority of the site's data. In this section, census data is organised under topic headings which each have sub-menus that appear when you hover over the heading.


The second major part of the site contains the Maps for Iwi population densities across New Zealand, and for the Rohe boundaries.

Deprivation index

Each Rohe has a deprivation index which provides further profiling information. The rohe deprivation index is developed using data from the total population of the rohe.

Post-Census updates

The estimated resident Māori population (ERP) is updated annually by Statistics New Zealand. Data is available back to 1991.
