In 1936 71% of Māori lived in dwellings that the whānau owned, by 1991 the ownership rate had fallen to 56%, by 2013 it was at 43%, and today it is likely to be below 40%. This is compared to the national average of 70% for Pākēha (Stats NZ 2016). If home ownership continues to decline at the rate it has been falling since 1991 Māori will almost be entirely renters by 2061. This would be a social and economic disaster.
