NZIPS Outcomes Report - June 2012
NZIPS Outcomes Report - June 2012 (PDF 4.7Mb)
This world leading 2012 Report presents progress indicators for long and medium term injury prevention outcomes and shows the impact of lead agency injury prevention activity within the New Zealand Injury Prevention Strategy (NZIPS) priority areas of: assault, drowning, falls, road, suicide and self-harm, injury to Maori, and work-related, unintentional child, and alcohol-related injury.
The Report uses many sources of intelligence including official injury statistics, outcomes and activities reported by government agencies, and sector feedback to derive recommendations for further action in each of the Strategy’s priority/focus areas.
The Report shows that New Zealand’s injury rate has not declined over the past ten years, and that while good progress has been made in reducing the rate of deaths from road crashes and drowning, falls and suicide remain significant areas of concern.
