dc.description.abstractThis research aims to enhance understanding of the community and voluntary sector of New Zealand. This is done through analysis of secondary data about charitable organisations. This data is obtained from the Charities Register of New Zealand. The analysis is guided by findings about the New Zealand non-profit sector, in the publications produced to contribute information to the Johns Hopkins Comparative Non-profit Sector Project. The Charities Register data helped explore four areas of information about the charitable sector. These are 1) factors that contribute to the establishment and growth of charities and changes over a period of time 2) funding sources for various charities across different social sectors and geographical areas 3) government funding contribution and instances of charities implementing government objectives in the sector, and 4) effects of population change and socio-economic deprivation on the number of charities within a geographical area in New Zealand. The findings from this research highlight the fact that there is great potential within the Charities Register data to inform about the charitable sector in New Zealand. This research has broadly explored this data and identified some factors that can be taken into consideration when government and non-government agencies are making funding decisions on allocation among charitable organisations within the sector.
