Children's Profile

The Children's Profile gathers together information about under-14s living in Palmerston North, and considers some of the important issues for them.

The profile covers the projected changes to the children's population over the next decade, as well as the health and wellbeing of Palmerston North children in comparison to New Zealand children overall.

It also presents statistics about education, housing and recreation, and draws some conclusions about the extent to which children are able to participate in local decision-making that affects their lives.
