Is the New Zealand justice system fair?

In a recent public survey we asked:

"Do you think the New Zealand justice system treats everybody equally regardless of race, occupation and personal connections?"

  • 17% said yes - it does treat everybody equally
  • 74% said no - it does not treat everybody equally
  • 9% said they were unsure

Males were more likely to say it does treat everybody equally when compared to females (22%  to 13%)

All numbers are again from a UMR online SAYit poll of n=1000 nationally representative New Zealanders conducted between the 30st September and  13th October 2016. The margin of error for a 50% with 95% confidence is +/- 3.1%.
