The focus of this study has been to investigate the socio-cultural factors associated with food security and physical activity for Māori and Pacific people, and it has taken as a central thesis the view that at least some of the differences in the distribution of nutritional status among different populations within New Zealand have socio-cultural bases that are either independent of socioeconomic factors or that condition culturally specific responses to socioeconomic factors. This report is in four substantive sections: Introduction; Report of the Māori component of the research; Report of the Pacific component of the research, and a concluding Afterword. The Māori and Pacific reports each include their own, stand-alone, conclusions and recommendations to support the development of culturally appropriate interventions and strategies for improving nutrition and levels of physical activity for Māori and Pacific people, respectively.
