The latest Maori in the Labour Market report says the Maori employment rate continued to increase but remained below the national rate through 2016.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment says employment rates for Maori increased with their level of education, with more Maori employed than five years ago in skilled occupations, particularly in the professional and technician and trade occupation groups.

The majority of Maori are still employed in semi-skilled and low-skilled occupations.

The participation rate for Maori increased by 1.6 percentage points from five years ago when the first such survey was done, to reach 66.8 per cent.

The Maori unemployment rate declined by 1.8 percentage points since 2011 to reach 11.0 percent in 2016.

Employment rates were lowest in in the 15 to 24 age group, with one in five Maori youth out of work, and there were lower employment rates for Maori women than Maori men.

Participation rates were highest in Te Waipounamu and Whanganui a Tara.
