Simon Chapple argues persuasively that the current wisdom of a 100K Māori population c1770 is too low. Pre-contact population >200K is a distinct possibility implying a more catastrophic pop decline in NZ's colonial era. New in Asia-Pacific Economic History Review.

Geoffrey Brooke & Lydia Cheung in @APEHR link military to birth records showing 1/3 of NZ soldiers 1899-1902 misrepresented their age. The young tended to overstate & older men understate age. There was no age heaping. Misreporting does not affect patterns of height by age. Useful analysis of incentives to misreport.

A decline in cost accelerated the growth of patenting in 1880s New Zealand, according to granger causality analysis by Matthew Gibbons & Les Oxley in @APEHR Lower costs broadened participation somewhat but even so few women & only 1 Maori acquired patents 1860-1899. Open Access!
