Māori adults were more likely than non-Māori adults to suffer adverse health effects as the victims of violence. Māori adults were more than 2.5 times as likely as non-Māori to die from assault and homicide (RR 2.67, CI 1.83–3.90). The disparity was greater for males: the Māori male rate was nearly 4 times as high as that of non-Māori males (RR 3.66, CI 2.31–5.80).
Māori rates of hospitalisation as the result of assault or attempted homicide were also significantly higher than those for non-Māori (RR 3.38, CI 3.21–3.55). The disparity was greater for females: the Māori female rate was nearly 6 times as high as that of non-Māori females (RR 5.87, CI 5.28–6.52).
