Protocol for Government Agency Reporting on Injury Incidence in New Zealand

This Protocol sets out how government agencies monitor and report, at a high level, the rates and frequencies of injury in New Zealand. The aim of the Protocol is to enable consistent and comparable injury reporting, through an agreed set of injury measures that monitor injury rates and trends generically across all injuries and for the six priority injury areas of the New Zealand Injury Prevention Strategy (NZIPS).

The Protocol was signed by the chief executives of the lead agencies for NZIPS and Statistics New Zealand, and came into effect on 1 July 2010.

Purpose of the Protocol

The 2008 review of the Official Injury Information Programme found that injury reporting across government agencies was fragmented and that different measures were used for different purposes by different agencies. This creates confusion in the absence of a clear official picture and makes valid comparisons of injury rates difficult.

To address this issue, officials from the Department of Labour, Ministry of Transport, ACC, Ministry of Health, and Statistics New Zealand have developed this interagency protocol for Government Agencies to use the New Zealand Injury Prevention Strategy (NZIPS) serious injury outcome indicators as a consistent set of measures to monitor and report injury at a high level.
