This second report in the Te Ohonga Ake series explores the health status of Māori infants, children and young people using a range of routinely collected data sources.

Due to its large size, this report is presented as a reference manual which is divided into three main sections:

  1. Issues More Common in Infants
  2. Issues More Common in Children and or Common in Children and Young People
  3. Issues More Common in Young People.

For each indicator a "snapshot" of the most recent 5 years of data (hospital admissions 2006-2010; mortality 2004-2008) is provided, which compares rates for Māori children and young people with those of non-Māori non-Pacific children and young people.  Where possible, ethnic specific trends for each indicator are also presented for 2000-2010 (hospital admissions) or 2000-2008 (mortality).

This publication is available on the Otago University website.
