New Zealand Socio-economic Index 1996

This report details the New Zealand Socio-economic Index 1996 (NZSEI-96), a revised version of the New Zealand Socio-economic Index (NZSEI-91), based on data from the 1996 Census of Population and Dwellings.

The development of the NZSEI-91, including the construction of the index using 1991 Census data, and its validation with indicators of health drawn from the 1992/1993 New Zealand Household Health Survey, is summarised in Section 1, along with issues that emerged during the development of this initial version. These comprised difficulties in including those in part-time and self-employment, as well as individuals outside the labour market. Addressing these issues, together with the need to update the NZSEI-91 in line with recent Census data, constituted the primary rationale for the current research.
