Changes in home-ownership patterns 1986–2013: Focus on Māori and Pacific people

Changes in home-ownership patterns 1986–2013: Focus on Māori and Pacific people explores the changes in tenure patterns (home ownership and renting) between 1986 and 2013, but focuses particularly on changes within the Māori and Pacific populations. We also look briefly at tenure patterns for earlier years in order to show the contrasting patterns in home ownership for Māori and the rest of the population. We explore whether the differing age structure of the Māori and Pacific peoples populations may contribute to their lower home-ownership rates, relative to the general population.

While there is some variability within the different Pacific populations, this paper concentrates on tenure at the highest level of the ethnic classification.
