Number and proportion of children by risk group
April 2010–March 2011
And the correlation between family type and risk
Remember ex Minister for Social Development Steve Maharey and his claim, "I know of no social science that says the nuclear family is more successful than other kinds."
I don't think the Tui billboards were around then but this absurdity would have been a prime candidate.
The report also looks at ethnicity and age of mother and turns up no surprises.
"Nearly 43 percent of households in the high-risk group had a Māori respondent, compared with 8 percent in the no-risk group"
"1 in 5 high-risk and medium-risk households contain a young mother, compared with 1 in 20 in the no-risk group."
NOTE finally that the report states,
"The selected risk factors are related to health, housing, income adequacy, neighbourhood, social connections, crime, and discrimination. The measures are not exhaustive and information on other possible risk factors, such as parental drug or alcohol abuse, is not covered by the survey. As some risk factors are linked to the individual respondent, not the household as a whole, this report will understate the number of households and children at risk."
So the actual picture is probably worse. Considerably.
