Being part of a family is a universal experience that is the most significant socialising influence in a person’s life. The wellbeing of families is fundamental to the wellbeing of individuals and of the societies in which they live.
This is the fourth in a series of annual reports on the wellbeing of families and whānau in New Zealand. In 2016, we focused on ethnic differences in how our families are faring, a greater understanding of what Māori describe as ‘whānau’ and how different cultures define ‘family’.
