Purpose and key findings

Purpose

A matter of trust: Patterns of Māori trust in institutions 2013 used information from the Te Kupenga survey to explore Māori adults’ (aged 15 years and over) patterns of trust in six selected institutions. We discuss the most- and least-trusted institutions and the characteristics of Māori associated with these levels of trust.

Key findings

A matter of trust finds that:

  • Māori adults have the highest levels of trust in the police, the health system, and the courts, while the lowest trust was in the media.
  • On average, the more trusting Māori are towards people in general, the more trusting they are of institutions.
  • Young Māori (aged 15–19) and older Māori (65+) tend to be more trusting of the police and media than those aged 20–64.
  • Māori who identify as being of sole Māori ethnicity are less likely to trust the police – but more likely to trust the media – than those who identify with multiple ethnicities.
  • As material well-being increases, the level of trust in the police also does.
  • The more highly qualified Māori are, the lower their level of trust in media.
  • Māori adults who are unemployed have a higher level of trust in media than those who are employed or not in the labour force.
