Trust and participation in government

The data in this indicator is no longer being updated.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?

We measure trust and participation in government as a way of checking if people feel they have civil and political rights. These include rights to:

  • participate in decision-making by voting
  • be fairly represented in government
  • seek redress for discrimination
  • conduct business with public officials in an open and transparent manner, without fear of involvement in corrupt practices.
