Discussion of findings from the 2016 review of the statistical standard for iwi presents a range of options for revising the statistical standard for iwi.
We are undertaking this review to understand the current and future needs of users of iwi statistics.
During the research and consultation phase of the review, we worked closely with working group members representing Statistics NZ, Māori, and other government agencies. The findings and options in this report were given to working group members to consider and provide feedback for revising the standard.
The information presented in this report, together with feedback from working group members, informed the development of recommendations for revising the statistical standard for iwi. The next step will be further consultation early next year around the proposed changes to the standard, which includes criteria for inclusion into the classification. Following on from that we will refresh the classification list of iwi groups from June 2017.

4 November 2016: We have corrected ‘Māori advisors’ to read ‘the working group’ in this report. The working group comprises members representing Statistics NZ, cross-government agencies, and Māori. We apologise for any misunderstanding.
