Commentary on Te Tai Waiora: Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand

29 August 2023: In 2022, the Treasury produced a report on the state of New Zealand's well-being called Te Tai Waiora: Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand. We looked at this report, as well as well-being reports from other countries, to provide observations that could help the Treasury’s future well-being reports.

"New Zealand's well-being is also an opportunity to build closer connections with New Zealanders, develop a wider understanding of what matters to New Zealanders, counter misinformation, demonstrate public accountability, and strengthen trust and confidence in the public sector. In my view, the Treasury has the opportunity to realise this potential."
