West Coast DHB Census

What the Census tells us

The West Coast DHB has released a quick snapshot of the latest census data available. Statistics New Zealand is yet to release all of the data from the 2013 Census, but early results of the census indicate how the profile of our population has changed. Consideration of these changes is crucial to the planning of future health services on the West Coast.
