Note: Ratios in bold show that Māori rates were significantly different from non-Māori rates in the DHB.

On average, two Māori children under 15 years were admitted to hospital at least once with acute rheumatic fever, at a rate of 20 per 100,000. The rate for Māori boys was 3 times the rate for non-Māori boys.

Among young people aged 15–24 years, one Māori per year was admitted for acute rheumatic fever. The rate for young Māori women was 7.5 times the non-Māori rate, or 24 more admissions per 100,000.
