  1. This table presents the results of a single regression where the dependent variable is a dummy for living in a different LMA to 5 years earlier. It replicates the specification in column 2 of Table 3 but controls for labour market conditions and interacts these with ethnic group. Labour market conditions are defined for the LMA lived in 5 years earlier by 10-year age group and three-category qualifications (grouping degree with post-school). The labour force participation rate and unemployment rate are expressed as fractions. Fixed effects are also included in the regression for each of these 30 groups. See the notes of Table 1 for a description of how local LMAs for each iwi are defined. The sample size is 2,034,177 observations. Standard errors are in parentheses
  2. ***Significant at 1 %; **Significant at 5 %; *Significant at 10 %
