Pacific peoples are a diverse population made up of cultures from many different Pacific Islands. Samoan, Cook Islands Māori, Tongan, Niuean, Fijian, Tokelauan, Tuvaluan and Kiribati
comprise the eight main Pacific ethnic groups in New Zealand. For the purposes of comparing high level ethnic groups in New Zealand they are referred to collectively as ‘Pacific peoples’. This publication provides a snapshot of data, presented with infographics of the socio-demographic characteristics of Pacific peoples in New Zealand, including a focus on family violence and experiences with Child, Youth and Family.
