Using data and information about the workforce, people accessing services, and the population supports effective workforce planning

Te Pou regularly reports data and information that is useful for workforce planning purposes. Te Pou may collect this information, eg More than numbers workforce data, or it may be collected from other sources and reported by Te Pou.

  • the Programme for Integration of Mental Health Data (PRIMHD)
  • the DHB mental health and addiction employees profile reports (see below)
  • DHB population profile reports (see below)

Other information that's useful for workforce planning includes:

Getting it right - informing your planning is another useful resource. The guide was developed by Te Pou to support organisations to identify and use data sources and metrics to inform their workforce planning activities.

DHB mental health and addiction employees profile reports

Te Pou produces annual reports about the DHB mental health and addiction employee profile. Each year we summarise the socio-demographic and service profile of DHB employees working in all mental health and addiction services. The reports are based on information provided by the Health Workforce Information Programme (HWIP).

Reports available for year ended:

Te Pou is very pleased to continue working with the HWIP team to produce these reports.

Annual DHB population profile reports

Te Pou produces annual reports summarising the most recent Statistics New Zealand population estimates and projections.

Each report presents summary tables by DHB locality for the current and next 10 years for all the population, by ethnicity, and by age groups (children and youth; adults; older people).

Reports are available for years:
