This report contains the details and analysis that sit behind the Families and Whānau Status Report 2016.

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.

In 2016, we focused on ethnic differences in how our families are faring, a greater understanding of what Mäori describe as ‘whānau’ and how different cultures define ‘family’.

If you’re looking for a high level overview or a summary of the findings, we recommend starting with the At a Glance or Research Summary.
