Older People's Data Explorer

We have released a new data explorer on the characteristics of Aotearoa New Zealand’s older population.

The data explorer(external link) has been developed following work with the Te Manatū Whakahiato Ministry for Social Development and Manatū Hauora Ministry of Health  to understand the size, scale and characteristics of older people experiencing vulnerability in health, housing, finance, social connection, and access.

Data from the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) was analysed to learn more about experiences of New Zealanders, aged 65 years or older, across these domains.

The findings of this analysis were published in the report (June 2023) Older people experiencing vulnerability and multiple disadvantage in New Zealand.(external link)The data explorer tool follows on from this report and visualizes the data the report used.
