This report provides data from the Youth19 Rangatahi Smart Survey (Youth19) about secondary school students who report they have been involved with Oranga Tamariki or Child Youth and Family Services on the topic of ‘Home and Housing’. Youth19 is a comprehensive adolescent health and wellbeing survey completed with 7,721 Year 9-13 students in schools and kura kaupapa Māori in the Auckland, Te Tai Tokerau and Waikato education districts in 2019. These school years were previously known as ‘Forms 3-7’. Almost all these students are aged 13 to 18 years. Robust sampling processes and statistical methods are used to produce prevalence estimates for important health and wellbeing indicators for Year 9-13 students across Aotearoa New Zealand (Fleming et al., 2020; Rivera-Rodriguez et al., 2021). In addition, 92 Alternative Education (AE) students and 78 young people who were not in education, employment, or training (NEET) took part. These are smaller samples which are not random, so results for these participants are reported separately. The survey is completed in English or Te Reo Māori with optional voiceover. Ethical approval was granted by The University of Auckland Human Subjects Ethics Committee (application #022244). For more about Youth19, see our Youth19 Rangatahi Smart Survey, Initial Findings: Introduction and Methods report, which explains how the survey was conducted, who was included and how to interpret the results.
