Incidence rates of work-related injury claims by geographic region, 2016
Work-related claims measure claims accepted by Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) for work-related injuries.
This dataset contains incidence rates of work-related injury claims for the 2016 calendar year, calculated by Stats NZ. Incidence rates are the number of work-related claims per 1,000 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). FTE figures are as estimated by Stats NZ’s Household Labour Force Survey.
All figures presented in this dataset are provisional because claims for injuries that occurred in 2016 can still be updated and filed. Final work-related claim figures for 2016 will be released in 2018.
Geographic regions are groupings of territorial authorities (TAs). In most cases, regional boundaries follow TA boundaries. Where the TAs straddle more than one geographic region, they are assigned to the region containing the greatest proportion of their population.
Entitlement payments include death benefits, weekly compensation, lump sum, and rehabilitation payments.
