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 Maori.
