Disability is an important issue for Māori, who have a relatively high disability rate for a population with a relatively young age structure. Improving the well-being of disabled Māori depends on policymakers and service providers having good information about how they are currently faring. He hauā Māori: Findings from the 2013 Disability Survey contributes to this by providing a picture of well-being among disabled Māori.
The report looks at the prevalence of disability in the Māori population. It also describes how disabled Māori compare with other Māori across social and economic outcomes including employment, income, housing, education, personal security, social connections, health, and overall life satisfaction.
