Migrant and Refugee Youth in New Zealand: Statistical Profile, 1996 to 2007

— theme: Youth Employment, Youth and Migration
— country: Pacific, New Zealand
— type: Surveys

This report builds a profile of migrant and refugee youth (people aged 12 to 24 years) in New Zealand by analysing immigration approval data (1998 to 2007) and Census of Population and Dwellings (census) data (1996, 2001, and 2006). Data is reported separately for two age groups: 12-17-year-olds (school age) and 18-24-year-olds (post school age).

The report covers a range of characteristics and key outcomes, including immigration approval trends, demographic data, ethnic identity, English language ability, labour force and study participation, location in New Zealand and living arrangements.

The report focuses on youth born overseas and provides separate data where available about migrant youth who have been in New Zealand for less than five years. The report also highlights areas where migrant youth differ from New Zealand-born youth and the total migrant population and identifies trends over the three censuses.
