Further research and reading

While this exploratory report has focused on the top three housing problems reported by New Zealanders in 2010/11, there is potential to explore other housing data that is collected in the NZGSS, and to look at housing in the context of different well-being domains.

The NZGSS collects information on subjective housing satisfaction, objective household crowding, and health status within the context of overall well-being. Data is available from 2008/9 and 2010/11, and later this year 2012/13 results will be released.

Further research using NZGSS data could explore:

  • How satisfied people are with their houses by whether or not they reported major housing problems, and the types of problems.
  • Key determinants of perceived housing problems.
  • The complexities in the relationship between income, standard of living, and perceived housing problems.
  • The relationship between the subjective ‘house is too small’ measure and the objective household crowding measure.
  • The association between perceived housing condition and mental health using multivariate analysis.
  • The relationship between life satisfaction and housing satisfaction.

If you would like to begin exploring NZGSS data, two related interactive NZGSS 2010 tables on housing quality are available:

These contain data on housing satisfaction, housing tenure, and the proportion of the population reporting a major housing problem by ethnicity, family type, and age.

New Zealand General Social Survey: 2010 has general information about the social and economic outcomes of the population reporting a major housing problem.

New Zealand General Social Survey has more information about the survey and previous data releases.
