3 December 2020
Te Whata – an online storehouse of data
designed to make iwi data more relevant, accessible and useful for iwi
needs – has been welcomed by Government Statistician and Stats NZ Chief
Executive, Mark Sowden.
“I’m delighted to see Te
Whata in action – it is ground-breaking
and easy to use,” Mr Sowden said today.
The development of Te Whata has been resourced
by Stats NZ Tatauranga Aotearoa under the Mana
Ōrite Relationship Agreement with
the Data Iwi Leaders Group (Data ILG) and Te Kāhui Raraunga Charitable
“I would like to congratulate the Data ILG
and Te Kāhui Raraunga Charitable Trust on the recent launch of Te Whata,”
Mr Sowden said. “It’s clear that a huge amount of hard work, innovation,
and thought leadership has gone into building this exciting tool.
“The platform provides iwi with access to
data and insights that are relevant to their own contexts, enabling Māori
to see themselves in the data better.”
