In 2018, 8,982 people or 16.7% of the population in Kāpiti Coast District identified themselves as having Māori descent.
A person has Māori descent if they are of the Māori race of New Zealand; this includes any descendant of such a person. The term "Māori descent" is based on a genealogical or biological concept, rather than on cultural affiliation to the Māori ethnic group. Information on cultural affiliations, or ethnicity, is collected in the census question on ethnic group. It is important to view this question in conjunction with the question about Ethnicity as some people who have Māori ancestry may not identify themselves ethnically as Māori .
Kāpiti Coast District's Māori descent statistics should be viewed in conjunction with Ethnicity data, Languages Spoken and Religion statistics to provide a more complete picture of the Māori population.
Please note: The 2018 Census utilised past Census data and statistical imputation to improve the response rate for this variable, there is a reduction in the "Not Stated/Not Elsewhere included" rate in 2018, and comparisons with earlier years may in some cases reflect this methodology change rather than real world change. See Stats NZ’s DataInfo+ for specific information on what this rating means and recommendations for use.
