  • Over 21,000 Māori run their own business.
  • Māori are half as likely to be self-employed as the total population.
  • Median incomes for self-emplopyed Māori are similar to those for all self-employed people, while there is a larger gap between the incomes of Māori employees and all employees.
  • More self-employed Māori worked in the service sector than in any other sector.
  • The self-employment rate amongst Māori differs by region.
