A fair chance for all: breaking the cycle of persistent disadvantage - interim report

Low socioeconomic status Social inequality Social disadvantage Socio-economic disadvantage New Zealand

The Productivity Commission has released its preliminary findings and recommendations so the final report can benefit from review and critique by a wide range of stakeholders.

The inquiry focuses on the overall settings of the public management system. The Commission has deliberately taken this whole-of-system view, rather than assessing policies and services in one or two government sectors.

The Commission has looked across the whole public management system to understand what is creating the inequities in people's lives in the first place, why certain groups are more vulnerable to persistent disadvantage in New Zealand, and how the public management system contributes to that. The Commission developed this report based on evidence and research carried out or commissioned.
