The author of this article comments on the work of sociologist C. Gibson that appeared in the February 1973 issue of the journal "Demography." In an otherwise insightful analysis, Gibson makes two generalizations regarding the reasons underlying the rapid Maori urbanization that are not supported in fact. More importantly, there was not a great demand for urban Maori labor until the manpower shortage that accompanied World War II. These factors are often ignored in discussions of the phenomenally rapid Maori urbanization. But without the impact of World War II on the economy of New Zealand and the change in official emphasis from rural to urban development it is unlikely that Maori urbanization would have achieved such large proportions.
