Further sources of data


Risk factors common to several chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory disease, or vascular dementia, include smoking, alcohol and drug use, nutrition, body size, and physical activity. Improvements in these indicators require public health and intersectoral action to support healthy environments and living conditions for Māori communities, as well as primary care interventions designed for individuals and whānau. The 2012/13 New Zealand Health Survey provides evidence of inequities between Māori and non-Māori in the prevalence of these risks factors at the national level (Ministry of Health 2013).

Other useful data sources include the Ministry of Health’s publications on Māori health, the Health Quality and Safety Commission’s Atlas of Healthcare Variation, the DHB reports and Te Ohonga Ake reports of the New Zealand Child and Youth Epidemiology Service, the Trendly health performance monitoring website, and the Māori Health Plan Indicator reports provided to DHBs.
