  1. This table presents the results of three linear probability regressions in which the dependent variable is a dummy for living in a different LMA to 5 years earlier. All regressions pool data from 2001 and 2006. The sample is all New Zealand-born European and Maori aged 30–59. See the notes to Table 1 for a description of how local LMAs for each iwi are defined. Each regression also includes an indicator variable for missing qualifications. Additional controls are marital status (indicator variables for never married, married, de facto married, divorced or separated, widowed, or missing marital status), employment status (indicator variables for employed full-time as a wage/salary earner, employed full-time as a non-wage/salary earner, employed parttime as a wage/salary earner, employed part-time as a non-wage/salary earner, unemployed, not in the labour force, or missing employment status), income the previous year (indicator variables for nine numerical categories or missing), and household composition (indicator variables for a couple with dependent/adult children, a couple without dependent/adult children, a single parent of dependent/adult children, or a non-family). Standard errors are in parentheses
