This report addresses a substantial gap in the quantitative evidence base about whānau wellbeing. It is also the first report to undertake a detailed analysis of self-assessed whānau wellbeing in Te Kupenga, the survey of Māori wellbeing undertaken by Statistics New Zealand following the 2013 Census. It focuses on two key questions:
- How well do Māori think their whānau are doing?
- What are the critical factors associated with whānau doing well?
