Satisfaction with work-life balance

The data in this indicator is no longer being updated.

Stats NZ is developing well-being indicators, Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand - Ngā Tūtohu Aotearoa, to track New Zealand’s progress. As the well-being indicators have similar aims to the NZ Progress Indicators and NZ Social Indicators, we are reviewing the future of these existing indicators.

Please contact us at info@stats.govt.nz if you have any questions.

Why is this important for social statistics?

People need balance between paid work and other aspects of their lives. People who don’t have a satisfactory work-life balance may suffer from stress or anxiety. Long working hours or non-standard working hours (such as night shifts) may compromise work-life balance.

This indicator measures the proportion of employed people who are ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with their work-life balance.
