Ethnic discrimination prevalence and health associations in New Zealand Youth
10 weeks

Lay summary

Research has shown that ethnic discrimination is more commonly reported by minority groups within society. Further research shows that ethnic discrimination may be associated with poor health outcomes within groups that report high rates of ethnic discrimination. Measuring ethnic discrimination prevalence in youth can highlight the progress (if any) that New Zealand has made to lower ethnic discrimination prevalence towards minority groups, especially Māori.
