Interactive New Zealand Injury Statistics

NZ Injury Query System (NIQS).

NIQS is a simple online injury query system which lets you quickly produce New Zealand non-fatal and fatal injury related statistics based on parameters such as year, age group, geographic area, cause, and intent.

NIQS can run two types of queries, fatal and non-fatal. Fatal queries let you to see the number and rate of injury deaths in New Zealand based on data from coronial records. Non-fatal queries allow 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.
