Position Paper on Māori Health Analytics – Age Standardisation.

The Ministry continues to use and advocate the use of the 2001 Census Māori population as the standard population in Māori health analytics (with Māori as the focus and non-Māori as the comparator group). The main reasons for doing so are:

  • results continue to be comparable with our previous work in this area and that of Māori academics and researchers we have worked with since 2006
  • the Ministry prefers to implement any changes to the standard population in consultation with its network of Māori academics and researchers.
