New Zealand General Social Survey

I missed this when released, but Stats NZ does a general social survey every two years.  Some of the results for 2012 compared to 2008:

  • Satisfied or very satisfied with life 86.7% (+1.7%)
  • Adequacy of income not enough 15.3% (-0.1%)
  • Have a major house problem 33.5% (-3.8%)
  • Feel safe/very safe in neighbourhood 67.2% (+15.7%)
  • Have experienced discrimination in the last year 9.6% (-0.5%)
  • Household mainly recycles 80.1% (+6.6%)

A massive increase in the proportion who feel safe in their neighbourhood, and minor improvements in other areas.
