It is measure of cultural affiliation, as opposed to race, ancestry, nationality or citizenship. Ethnicity is self perceived and people can record affiliation to more than one ethnic group or have mixed ethnicity for example Cook Island Maori. Statistics New Zealand uses a coding software to ensure each individual is recorded in only one of the above categories for the seven broad ethnic groups: New Zealander, European, Maori, Pacific, Asian, MELAA and other. For those with mixed ethnicity, the lower coding number for the ethnic group recorded by the individual is dropped off so that only the ethnic group with the higher code number is captured. The 2006 census recorded a New Zealander category for the first time which includes Kiwi. Individuals perceive ethnicity as nationality rather than cultural affiliation. For time series purposes, this group can be added to the European group according to Statistics New Zealand.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
