Child Poverty in New Zealand

July 23, 2021 at 3:30 PM

From the Ministry of Social Development

The MSD report uses Stats NZ’s new larger Household Economic Survey (HES) to provide detailed information on:

  • the demographics of child poverty, with breakdowns by different household characteristics
  • what it means in practice day-to-day for children who are identified as ‘poor’ by one or more of the CPRA measures – using child-specific indicators available for the first time in HES 2018-19
  • how New Zealand children are faring compared with their European counterparts
  • the interpretation of the high-level CPRA figures that Stats NZ publish each year.
