Statistics New Zealand's definition of family nucleus and couple are consistent with United Nations recommendations. Statistics New Zealand's definition of child is comparable to the United Nations recommendation except for foster children. Although the United Nations recommends excluding foster children when classifying children, Statistics New Zealand stakeholders have indicated that foster children should be included when classifying children in a family nucleus. This was deemed more appropriate for the New Zealand context of the family, and is in line with Australian definitions of children.
