Interactive New Zealand Injury Statistics
NIQS is a simple online injury query system which allows you to produce numbers and rates of injuries in New Zealand based on your parameters of interest, such as years, age groups, geographic area, cause, or intent.
NIQS can do two types of queries, fatal and non-fatal. A fatal query enables you to determine the number and rate of injury deaths in New Zealand based on coronial records. A non-fatal query allows you to do the same for injuries that result in admission to public hospitals in New Zealand. The vast majority of people requiring inpatient treatment for injuries are admitted to public hospitals, so this data provides a reasonable indication of serious injuries in New Zealand.
Customised Enquiries Service
NIQS is intended to provide relatively basic information. If it cannot answer your question you should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a free community service, funded by the Ministry of Health, to provide more detailed injury statistics. IPRU endeavours to respond to enquiries within five working days. If the matter is urgent, tell us. (Note that any request that would take us more than six hours, or requests for more than 30 hours per organisation per year are currently beyond the scope of this service.)
