Statistics New Zealand recently released data showing no improvement for children living in material hardship over the past year.
Arno spoke to Molly Grant, a researcher at the University of Auckland conducting a survey of over 5000 children in a project called Growing Up in New Zealand. She has uncovered some of the symptoms of childhood poverty and is calling for policy changes to help urgently increase some of the country’s lowest incomes.
Arno started the interview by asking if New Zealand was “the best place in the world to grow up”, set as a government goal four years ago.
