Ngā tohu o te ora: The determinants of life satisfaction for Māori 2013 provides a comprehensive understanding of the aspects of life that contribute to life satisfaction for Māori.
People have always pursued well-being. Governments are concerned with providing better lives for their citizens. They can do this by developing the conditions and selecting the interventions that enable people to live the lives they want. To do this, we need to better understand the areas of life that have the greatest impact on well-being.
Previous work on well-being tended to look at populations as a whole – only a few have examined smaller sections of the population.
Little analysis exists on the relationship between life satisfaction and culture. In this report we also look at whether a stronger connection to Māori culture is associated with higher levels of life satisfaction.
