Introduction - Social Report 2004

The Social Report is an annual publication that monitors the wellbeing of New Zealanders.

The Social Report 2004 uses a set of statistical indicators to monitor trends across 10 discrete outcome domains. These 10 domains together provide a picture of overall wellbeing and quality of life in New Zealand.

The Social Report 2004 is the third in what has now become an annual series of reports on wellbeing in New Zealand and builds on the social monitoring framework first established by The Social Report 2001. We have added one new outcome domain to this year's report, and a number of new indicators that are based on information about how people see their own lives.
