Correction
to child poverty, and household income and housing costs statistics year
ended June 2020 – Media release

22 April 2021

Corrected child poverty statistics have been
published, and corrected household income and housing-costs statistics
will be published next Thursday, on 29 April 2021, Stats NZ said today.

The corrections applied have resulted in
changes to the published statistics for the year ended June 2020; however,
the statistics do not impact previously published years.

“After the corrections are applied, all
nine key measures of child poverty remain trending downwards across the
two years since the year ended June 2018,” work, wealth, and wellbeing
statistics senior manager Sean Broughton said.
