Auckland Maori population changing

Tamaki Makarau MP Peeni Henare says the Independent Maori Statutory Board’s new Auckland Report has confirmed the emergence of a growing Maori middle class, and that will affect policy needs.

The report updates progress towards the goals set in 2012 in the board’s 30-year Auckland Plan.

It found just 15 percent could hold a conversation in Maori, and Maori had the highest rates of 15 to 24-year-olds not in education, employment or training.

But it also identified a median household income across Maori households of just over $80,000, and 80 percent of Maori said they were satisfied with their life.

Mr Henare says the needs and wants of the population are changing.

He says international research shows a growing middle class can lead to a disconnection with culture.

MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: If we look at the opinion poll stats 6 months out from the last 3 elections, National over poll by a significant percentage, Labour over poll by a smaller percentage, the Greens are static and NZ First rises when Labour's vote collapses.
