Severe crowding in New Zealand since 1921: “A challenge to health and decency” (PDF, 24 pages, 721kb)
Severe crowding in New Zealand since 1921: "A challenge to health and decency" explores the history of crowding in New Zealand homes. This paper gives an overview of changes in crowding patterns since the 1920s and discusses some of the reasons that crowding has declined over time. Although the proportion of people living in crowded homes had declined by the beginning of the 21st century, crowding remains a health and social policy issue. A number of researchers have been concerned about the high rates of infectious disease in New Zealand, particularly among Māori and Pacific peoples. There is strong research evidence linking crowding and infectious disease.
