Research Summary

This is a summary of the research findings from the Families and Whānau Status Report 2016. It provides a greater level of detail than the At a Glance.

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’.
