Prioritized Ethnicity for NZ

The NZ Ministry of Health uses Prioritized Ethnicity in its epidemiological data. You can too, using Plaudit.

Age profile NZ Maori

New Zealand's National Health Index (NHI) database stores multiple self-identified ethnicities. These are used to generate the "Prioritized Ethnicity" used for funding and prioritization decisions.

In Plaudit, you can use Prioritized Ethnicity too, by downloading the PrioritizedEthnicity definition from the Rules repository. Once downloaded you can include it in your graphs and indicators.
