Latest Release Of Child Poverty Statistics

Published: Tue 23 Feb 2021 10:54 AM
All measures of child poverty were trending downwards, prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, across the two years since year ended June 2018, Stats NZ said today.
The COVID-19 lockdown in late March 2020 affected Stats NZ’s ability to collect data from households for child poverty statistics. Therefore, data in this release only covers nine months, to March 2020, meaning this release gives a clear picture of child poverty pre-COVID-19. Changes to methodology used to produce child poverty statistics were made. As a result, statistics previously published for year ended June 2019 have been revised.
“We are confident in the data’s ability to report on child poverty in New Zealand before the COVID lockdown in March 2020,” work, wealth, and wellbeing senior manager, Sean Broughton said.
