The Social Report 2005 uses a set of statistical indicators to monitor trends
across 10 "domains", or areas of people’s lives. These 10 domains together
provide a picture of overall wellbeing
and quality of life in New Zealand .
The Social Report 2005 is the fourth in an annual series of reports on wellbeing
in New Zealand and builds on the social monitoring framework first established by The Social
Report 2001. The 2005 report contains additional information on social wellbeing
across different parts of the country. Disaggregations of some social report
indicators to regional boundaries are, for the first time, provided on this website.
