New Zealanders are getting better at speaking te reo Mâori and are more supportive of its use in day-to-day life, Stats NZ Tatauranga Aotearoa said today.

New data from the 2021 General Social Survey (GSS), collected between April and August 2021, showed that the ability of New Zealanders (aged 15 and over) to speak te reo Mâori in day-to-day conversation has improved.

Since 2018, the proportion of people able to speak more than a few words or phrases of te reo Mâori rose from 24 percent to 30 percent. This follows a previous, smaller, rise between 2016 and 2018.
