Breaking the cycle of persistent disadvantage

The Productivity Commission was tasked with studying persistent disadvantage, its impact on individuals and society, and its connection to economic performance. The goal was to gain new insights into the dynamics and drivers of persistent disadvantage across different population groups, and to develop recommendations for breaking this cycle.

697,000 New Zealanders that face persistent disadvantage were analysed, resulting in the following report. The 20 findings and 20 recommendations serve to guide our long-term decisions and actions to a future without persistent disadvantage.
