MAORI AND THE INFORMATION WORKFORCE, 1991-2001

This paper documents the size, composition and changes in New Zealand's information workforce over the period 1991 to 2001. The estimates are disaggregated into Maori/non-Maori, by gender, and by major occupational categories. The absolute as well as relative size of the information workforce has continued to grow during the period, though the relative growth rate is a lot lower than during the 1980s. While the findings for women in general are encouraging, those for Maori, and especially Maori men, are less so. Maori remain underrepresented in the information workforce. Although their participation has increased, the gaps in participation rates between Maori and non-Maori have changed little.
