A new tool!! New Zealand Health Survey Regional Data Explorer
The Regional Data Explorer is an interactive tool for exploring New Zealand Health Survey data for each District Health Board, Public Health Unit and Regional Council. It presents the latest results by sex, age, ethnicity and neighbourhood deprivation, as well as changes over time and comparisons between regions.
This data explorer presents the 2014–17 regional results from the New Zealand Health Survey, for both adults and children. The data explorer includes data on health behaviours and risk factors, health conditions and access to health services. Results can be displayed by district health board (DHB), public health unit and regional council. The focus of the regional release is the most recent pooled data (2014–17), with data also available for 2011–14. Pooling data across years increases the sample size and produces more reliable estimates.
It also enables more detailed breakdowns for population sub-groups (ie, age, ethnicity and neighbourhood deprivation) within regions. The survey data is presented in tables, maps and graphs. The data is in machine-readable format to allow for easy reuse.
