Social investment: place

Regional data disparities are a challenge for social investment

Making good policy choices requires the best available data. New Zealand’s social data is collected by a number of independent administrative agencies, each of which divides the country into different regional territories. Each data set captures a different population, which makes comparisons across the social policy domains difficult and creates challenges for the
social investment approach.
