This report provides a picture of the health status of the Maori population compared with non-Maori. The publication provides a descriptive analysis of the data, with the statistical information accessible in an easy-to-use format. The most recent data available are presented for each indicator. This chart book will be repeated at three-yearly intervals to monitor progress.
