ACC manages about 1.6 million injury claims each year and we collect as much information about those injuries as possible. Injury statistics are a vital tool for injury prevention. They help us analyse claim trends, identify priority target areas, and develop programmes to reduce the number and cost of injuries to New Zealanders. We also use injury statistics to gauge the effectiveness of our injury prevention work.

All statistics are approximate as ACC relies on information provided in the ACC45 Injury claim form.

We are currently updating this section with the latest information.
