The Families and Whānau Status Report 2018 focuses on the wellbeing of New Zealand families and whānau.
This report is the sixth in a series of Families and Whānau Status Reports. These provide an annual account of key research from our Families and Whānau Wellbeing work programme.
An overarching theme emerging from the ongoing development of the families and whānau work programme is: to grow our understanding and capability in working between both Western science and te ao Māori world views.
This report was prepared by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) under delegation from Superu. As Superu has been disestablished, the Families and Whānau work programme is managed by MSD, effective from 1 July 2018.
