1.1  Purpose

This work makes use of integrated administrative data collected from across a number of government agencies in the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) and managed by Statistics New Zealand to ensure the security and confidentiality of people's information. The analysis is part of a broader direction by government agencies to work in a more collaborative way to better target social services where they are most needed. This study is focused on the youth population, defined as people aged 15 to 24, and seeks to identify specific groups within this population that are at particular risk of poor longer-term outcomes. The outcome measures used in the study and the approach to measuring risk are discussed below.
