The social report is an annual publication that monitors the wellbeing of New Zealanders

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.
