Injury Statistics – Work-related Claims: 2015
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  28 November 2016
Corrections

On 18 May 2018, we identified an issue in the data in Injury statistics –work-related claims: 2015, published 28 November 2016. This affects all products associated with the release. ACC Accredited Employers Programme claim information was added into the releases published from 2015, and incorrectly included non-accepted claims. This means Injury statistics – work-related claims: 2014, published 15 October 2015, and Injury statistics – work-related claims: 2016, published 31 August 2017, are also affected. This has resulted in the total number of claims for each year to be reported approximately 2–3 percent higher than they should be.

We recommend you do not use information from this release due to this error. Revised and more up-to-date data is available in the Injury statistics – work-related claims: 2017 release.

 

For more information, please email the Injury Data team at Injury&Crimedata-SharedMailbox@stats.govt.nz.

 

On 7 December 2016 we made corrections in the key facts and commentary of Work-related Claims: 2015.

In Key facts, we corrected “The agriculture, forestry, and fishing industry had the highest incidence rate in 2015 with 211 claims per 1,000 FTEs” to “…206 claims per 1,000 FTEs”.

In Commentary, we corrected the statement “In 2015, the construction industry had the highest number of entitlement claims, with 4,900 claims,” to: “In 2015, the manufacturing industry had the highest number of entitlement claims, with 6,600 claims.”

Statistics New Zealand regrets any inconvenience caused by this.
