Household incomes in New Zealand: Trends in indicators of inequality and hardship 1982 to 2016

This report provides information on the material wellbeing of New Zealanders as indicated by their household incomes from all sources over the period 1982 to 2016. It updates the last report published in 2016 which covered 1982 to 2015. It is one of a suite of three reports that provide information on the material wellbeing of New Zealanders. The suite includes: the Household Incomes Report; the companion report that uses non-income measures (NIMs) to measure and track material wellbeing; and an Overview report which provides a 40-page summary and synthesis of the findings in the two longer reports.
