These statistics come from the 2013 Census of Population and Dwellings, and from the 2013 New Zealand Index of Deprivation (Atkinson et al 2014). These indicators provide supporting information for the New Zealand Environmental Health Intelligence (EHI) programme.For more information about the EHI programme, visit www.ehinz.ac.nz.
