Working Towards Higher Living Standards for New Zealanders

Annex 1 - Indicators for Measuring Living Standards

This Annex provides a snapshot of New Zealand's living standards, as outlined in the proceeding Framework. For each factor, a range of indicators have been selected to measure New Zealand's overall performance and to analyse how living standards are distributed across the population.

The indicators have been selected through consultation with other departments and through research of comparable international reports. Where possible, indicators have been chosen that allow a comparison with other OECD countries as well as a break-down across ethnicities, ages, household types, gender and income brackets.
