This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 23 Jun 2022.

This dataset is the provisional 2023 dataset for Māori constituency. The final 2023 layer is scheduled to be published on 8 December 2022 as part of the annual boundary release.

The intention of providing this provisional dataset is to make available the boundaries that will be used for the local body elections being held in October 2022.

This dataset is the provisional set of regional council Māori constituency boundaries for 2023 as defined by the regional councils and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 11 Māori constituencies (excluding Area Outside Māori Constituency).

Māori constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes.

Māori constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are created, based on population, to be the voting areas within councils. Māori constituencies are defined at meshblock level, and do not coincide with the statistical area 1 (SA1) or statistical area 2 (SA2) geographies.

If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.

In the provisional 2023 classification six regional councils have Māori constituencies.

Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons. The name field without macrons is suffixed ‘ascii’.
