As a result some children miss out on the opportunities to be educated, healthy or nourished compared with their peers.
The third group of indicators provides information about the context in which the specific child-related issues arise, and are particularly relevant to goals to promote full and productive employment and decent work for all and to reduce inequality within and between countries.
The number and proportion of dependent 0—17 year olds living in households with the most severe income poverty have not declined since Material hardship In the New Zealand Household economic survey included child-specific items for the first time.
Over half of New Zealand 6—17 year olds experienced no lacks in 12 selected child-specific items.
These restrictions were experienced even more strongly among the ten percent of children living in households experiencing the most severe material hardship. The household economic survey also included the general household items used to construct a material hardship time series.
Persistent poverty The lack of longitudinal data about New Zealand does not have a current longitudinal survey that collects income data from the same households over time. This is a serious lack in official data to measure indicators of income poverty.
Child poverty related factors Infant deaths The rates of death for infants in the first year of life have remained fairly stable from to In the infant mortality rate for New Zealand was similar to that of the United States, higher than Australia and more than twice the rate in Slovenia, Iceland and Japan.
From to there was a statistically significant fall in the sudden unexpected death in infancy SUDI rate. Conditions with a social gradient Medical conditions with a social gradient include respiratory and communicable diseases such as asthma, bronchiolitis and gastroenteritis.
Injuries with a social gradient include road traffic crashes, drowning and falls. From to an average of 28 0—14 year olds died each year from medical conditions with a social gradient, and an average of 35 died from injuries with a social gradient.
From tothere were on average 41, hospitalisations each year of 0—14 year olds for medical conditions with a social gradient and on average 8, hospitalisations per year for injury with a social gradient. Assault neglect and maltreatment children aged 0—14 years died from injuries arising from assault, neglect, or maltreatment in the five years from — From — there were hospitalisations of 0—14 years olds for injuries arising from assault, neglect, or maltreatment.
The highest hospitalisation rate occurred in in the first year of life. Discrepancies in educational attainment persist despite improvements in all ethnic groups and in schools in areas with different levels of socioeconomic deprivation.
There were0—17 year olds dependent on a benefit recipient in June Child poverty measures The indicators used to measure child poverty in this report were recommended by the Expert Advisory Group on Solutions to Child Poverty.
These indicators comprise income measures using both a constant value fixed-line and contemporary median moving-line as well as measures of material hardship, severe poverty and poverty persistence.
The five measures each capture different aspects of child poverty and facilitate monitoring the reduction of child poverty in New Zealand. Income-based measures Household income is one measure commonly used to monitor child poverty. Children who live in households with low family income can experience lifelong damage, with proven effects on health, nutrition, brain development and educational attainment.View Zhanglong Cao’s profile on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional community.
