Download and read the Iwi affiliation data protocols - 22 September 2021

The protocols describe procedures for the standardised collection, recording and output of Māori descent and iwi affiliation data for the New Zealand health and disability system.

This document is consistent with the Iwi Statistical Standard and Classification published by Stats NZ (statistical standard) and outlines a new set of minimum standards that apply across the health and disability system to all organisations that collect, record and use iwi affiliation data. Integration of the protocols into the health and disability system will assist in the ongoing process of improving the quality, accuracy and consistency of iwi affiliation data.

This document is a draft.  We seek any and all comments on the suitability and fit-for-purpose nature of the draft.
