Lay summary
This project will be a longitudinal study that will link together the data from Te Kupenga, the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI)and the Longitudinal Census Database to create the world’s largest and most comprehensive indigenous longitudinal study capable of following individual pathways forwards and backward in time. Focusing on informing local interventions and policy, this project will transform national statistics into locally accessible information linked into service delivery planning and evaluation at the iwi, rohe as well as regional level. Linking into existing iwi and regional Maori development plans, this project will produce information that will immediately inform the delivery of services and interventions to improve rangatahi wellbeing. It will create a permanent resource within the official statistics system that can be used for research, evaluation, and monitoring of rangatahi wellbeing on an on‐going basis.
