It measures the needs of older people exploring the domains of health, housing, finance, social connection, and access.
This work supports actions under the Government’s Better Later Life Strategy Action Plan 2021-2024 – He Mahere Hohenga.
Data disclaimer: The research was based on the most recent 2018 Census data which includes information on home ownership and other socio-economic variables that are not available elsewhere. These sources do not consider the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Auckland floods, Cyclone Gabrielle, and the rising cost of living. Hence, the picture of need in this report is likely to be understated.
