|Poverty monitor 2019: technical report||1.32 MB|
This Child Poverty Monitor is the seventh consecutive annual report on implications of child poverty in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and updates the progress made toward a society where every child can flourish and achieve their potential. This report uses a variety of data sources to measure child poverty and is the first in the series to use the baseline data source recently developed by Stats NZ.
This Child Poverty Monitor is comprised of three clusters of indicators. The first group of indicators sets the baseline for measuring progress from 2019 toward a substantial reduction in the number and proportion of children living in households that experience income poverty and material hardship. This section also includes information about the number of children in households that are eligible for and receive financial assistance. The second group of indicators tracks progress toward goals to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing, ensuring access to sufficient and nutritious food, promoting nurture and protection within families and wider society as well as equitable, high-quality education for all. The final group of indicators provides information about the context in which the specific child-related issues arise and is particularly relevant to goals to ensure access to adequate, safe and affordable housing, promote full and productive employment and good work for all, and to reduce inequality within and between countries.
