Nga Tangata Oho Mairangi (NTOM)

Nga Tangata Oho Mairangi (NTOM) is a research project led by teams from Massey University and the University of Waikato and is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

New Zealand is experiencing significant demographic and economic changes which will alter the shape and nature of communities in New Zealand and will have an impact on economic development. This research project provides a detailed model of the nature of these changes at the regional level over the period 1986 to 2013 and will provide projections out to 2036.

The research team contains expertise on quantitative analyses of demographic and economic interactions, as well as qualitative and evaluation methodologies concerning policy, identity and mobility.
