Seminar: Wages, Wellbeing & Location
Speakers: Arthur Grimes and Philip S Morrison

This free seminar presents some of the latest research on urban wellbeing.

Location! Location! Location! What are the important attributes of places for people’s decisions of where to live; and what does this tell us about what features local policy-makers should emphasise in their development and planning decisions? While the analysis presented in this seminar uses Australian data, we can expect similar issues to be at the core of New Zealanders’ decisions of where they choose to live, work and play.

The analysis has implications for whether the “four wellbeings” that were at the heart of the Local Government Act 2002 (and which were removed from the Act in 2012) should have been retained. Philip will then summarise his recent research into subjective well-being as it relates to migration within New Zealand, differences in wellbeing across the major urban centres and the relationship between the two.
