  • Ruakaka Wastewater Long Term Resource Consents Project. Cultural Impact and Assessment Report

    Kepa, Tangiwai (2009-05)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Historical Background The development of Te Poupouwhenua, the Ruakaka/Marsden Point area, began in the mid-1860s, after large stretches of land were taken from M??ori by the Crown. The idea that development, meaning industrialization, considerably improved the lives of all New Zealanders is well documented. However, the alienation of M??ori from the sea and their ancestral lands was (and continues to be) an adverse consequence of development. M??ori with lands around Te Poupouwhenua included people from Patuharakeke Hap??. The tribe had lands taken from them so that roads and towns could be built for the settlement of British immigrants and the establishment of industry. In the 20th century, the Takahiwai Hills and the Pukekauri Land Block were taken from Patuharakeke Hap?? under the Public Works Act. The construction of the New Zealand Oil Refining Company and the deepwater port at Koutu, Marsden Point, resulted in parts of the sea and the ancestral lands becoming permanently inaccessible to the people. In the 21st century, the Takahiwai Hills continue to be excavated for metal and the seabed for sand. The construction of roads, railways, ports and cities continues! What M??ori has experienced as a result of all the development is the process of weakening the relationship between culture and specific place; however, the disconnection does not mean that culture has lost value and relevance for Patuharakeke Hap??. In 1998 a Tiriti o Waitangi Claim was lodged with the Waitangi Tribunal to address concerns that Patuharakeke Hap?? has with questionable land sales, land confiscations etc that took place in the mid 1860s. The claim was accepted by the Waitangi Tribunal and was designated Waitangi Tribunal Claim # 745. The Waitangi Tribunal Claim # 745 seeks redress for the wrongs inflicted on Patuharakeke Hap?? by the Crown (The New Zealand Government) for breaches of the Tiriti o Waitangi which was signed by the Chiefs of Aotearoa and the representatives of Queen Victoria (Queen of Britain) at the time.

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Ng?? Pae o te M??ramatanga project incorporates most of the secondary schools and wharekura within the Rotorua school zone. From the literature, data gathered, and the matching and discussion of this information; the research team???s aim is that educators, parents and wh??nau will better understand the nature of teaching, learning and home socialisation patterns that support M??ori student success. Interviews, focus group discussions and surveys involving successful M??ori students, their wh??nau, teachers and principals will enable examination of the multiplicity of factors that support M??ori student achievement. The findings will be disseminated widely to offer examples of student, wh??nau, teaching and school practices that support M??ori educational success. This project builds on a pilot project with a Rotorua secondary school already successfully undertaken by the research team.

  • Pacific Patterns in Primary Health Care: A comparison of Pacific and all patient visits to doctors: The National Primary Medical Care Survey (NatMedCa): 2001/02. Report 7

    Davis, Peter; Suaalii, Tamasailau; Lay Yee, Roy; Pearson, Janet (2005)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This study compares the experience of Pacific patients with that of the total population (including Pacific). The data was contributed by community general practices and A&M clinics. The report uses the data on 2,293 visits by Pacific patients (4% of all visits) with full encounter recordings for 536 visits. Sixty percent of Pacific patients saw a private GP, and 26.5% were seen at community-governed practices. Three hundred and twenty visits (13.9% on all Pacific visits) were at M??ori provider general practices. Half of the encounters with Pacific patients took place in Auckland, where Pacific patients made up 13.9% of total visits recorded. Half of the consultations were for those aged under 25 (compared to a quarter of the total sample). Overall, the attendance records were similar to the total sample, but there were higher rates for those under five, women over 55 and men over 65. Two thirds of Pacific patients had a benefit card compared with half the total sample. Nearly half lived in NZDep 2001 decile 10 areas. Practitioners assessed 22.4% as not fluent in English, compared with 4.1% of the total population. Although attachment to the practice that patients attended was similar to the total sample, GPs reported less rapport than average with Pacific patients. Few presentations were judged life-threatening (1.1%) and 73.5% were judged as intermediate or self-limiting. The average number of reasons for attending (1.3) was similar to that for the total sample. The number of problems recorded by GPs (1.4) was slightly less than the total sample (1.7). Nearly one third problems presented were respiratory conditions (compared with one fifth in the total sample). Pacific patients were less likely (17.8%) to have tests and investigations ordered than the total sample (24.9%). Drugs were prescribed during consultation more frequently (71.2% vs 66.2%) than in the total sample, and the number of prescriptions was higher per visit and per problem. Pacific patients (52.3%) were slightly less likely to be referred for treatment than in the total sample (57.3%). Pacific patients received fewer non-prescription treatments and treatment items than the total sample. Non-drug management was recorded for 47.5% of consultations, compared with 62.1% for the total sample. The most common item was health advice, more frequently for females. The average length of visit for those attending private GPs was shorter than for the other types of practice (community-governed practices and M??ori GPs), and fewer tests and investigations were ordered. More treatment items were offered to patients. There were some differences in treatment between Pacific and total populations at A&M Clinics. Pacific patients were less likely to receive a test or investigation in ???normal working hours??? visits, but there was no difference in ???out of office??? hours. They were less likely to receive a prescription or non-drug treatment in either of the sessions but had higher rates of follow-up than patients from the total sample.

  • Hot Property in New Zealand: Empirical Evidence of Housing Bubbles in the Metropolitan Centres

    Greenaway-McGrevy, Ryan; Phillips, Peter (2015-04-20)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Using recently developed statistical methods for testing and dating exhuberant behavior in asset prices we document evidence of episodic bubbles in the New Zealand property market over the past two decades. The results show clear evidence of a broad-based New Zealand housing bubble that began in 2003 and collapsed over mid 2007 to early 2008 with the onset of the worldwide recession and the ??nancial crisis. New methods of analyzing market contagion are also developed and are used to examine spillovers from the Auckland property market to the other metropolitan centres. Evidence from the latest data reveals that the greater Auckland metropolitan area is currently experiencing a new property bubble that began in 2013. But there is no evidence yet of any contagion e??ect of this bubble on the other centres, in contrast to the earlier bubble over 2003-2008 for which there is evidence of transmission of the housing bubble from Auckland to the other centres. One of our primary conclusions is that the expensive nature of New Zealand real estate relative to potential earnings in rents is partly due to the sustained market exuberance that produced the broad based bubble in house prices during the last decade and that has continued through the most recent bubble experienced in the Auckland region since 2013.

  • Teu Le Va ??? Relationships across research and policy in Pasifika education: A collective approach to knowledge generation & policy development for action towards Pasifika education success

    Airini; Anae, Melani; Mila-Schaaf, K (2010)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    In November 2007, a partnership between the Pasifika Caucus of the New Zealand Association for Research in Education (NZARE) and the Ministry of Education???s Pasifika and Research and Evaluation teams formed to sponsor the symposium Is Your Research Making a Difference to Pasifika Education? The symposium sought to grow the pool of researchers able and motivated to undertake quality research on improving Pasifika student outcomes; to identify good practice that has enhanced Pasifika education research/policy linkages; and to share ideas for and about Pasifika education research methodologies, in order to improve the quality and quantity of evidence informing Pasifika education policy. A wide group of people who have a stake in Pasifika education research came to the symposium to think about, debate and advise on the formation of guidelines to translate Pasifika education research into policy. The group included associates from the Ministry of Education and other government agencies, universities, the Private Training Establishment (PTE) sector, independent researchers, and community members.

  • Gender, culture and the Pacific

    Underhill-Sem, Yvonne (2010)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    The purpose of this paper is to provide a deeper understanding of how culture in the Pacific impacts gender equality and human development. The analysis addresses two views that are widely held in the Pacific: 1) that gender is biologically determined, and 2) that culture is a sacred template should not be meddled with. Both these notions have attracted sound scholarly consideration in the Pacific, which has shown that rather than either being fixed, gender is socially constructed and culture is constituted by contemporary milieu as much as it is by its traditional and historical genealogy.

    Storbacka, Kaj (2009)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    The management consultancy Vectia Ltd. was founded in 1994 around a particular management innovation, namely that competitive advantage could be built by a better understanding of how to manage existing and new customer relationships. At the outset, the company was called CRM Customer Relationship Management Ltd., in order to pinpoint the importance of a new management practice, related to the management of customer relationships. In the beginning, only the true management innovators were interested in exploring the apparent opportunities involved in viewing customers from a process point of view, rede??? ning the offering in such a way that win-win relationships could be created, and maximizing the potential shareholder value effects of customers.

  • Exchange Rates as Exchange Rate Common Factors

    Greenaway-McGrevy, Ryan; Mark, NC; Sul, D; Wu, JL (2012-08)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Factor analysis performed on a panel of 23 nominal exchange rates from January 1999 to December 2010 yields three common factors. This paper identifies the euro/dollar, Swiss-franc/dollar and yen/dollar exchange rates as empirical counterparts to these common factors. These empirical factors explain a large proportion of exchange rate variation over time and have significant in-sample and out-of-sample predictive power.
