About this dataset

Māori economic development is an important driver of New Zealand’s economy. Within the economy Māori businesses include Māori authorities, small- and medium enterprises, and Māori-in-business (self-employed).
Tatauranga Umanga Māori 2015 provides a range of statistics on a subset of Māori businesses that contribute to our country’s economy – Māori authorities. These updated statistics illustrate the importance of Māori authorities to the economy, and that they have grown and diversified at the same time as they’ve strengthened their existing connection with the land and the sea.
