Smoking a 'Key Wellbeing indicators for NZ'

Statistics NZ is currently developing wellbeing measures in Aotearoa. Stats NZ are running a full consultation on what indicators of wellbeing should be included. According the Stats NZ, the indicators will monitor:

Here and now – the wellbeing of the current generation, eg life satisfaction and health.

Later – what we’re leaving behind for future generations, eg fish stocks and waste.

Elsewhere – how our actions are impacting on other countries, eg foreign aid.

Why include smoking?

Tobacco smoking directly impacts wellbeing. It is a leading cause of health loss, premature death and health inequity. It is also a predictor of future health and wellbeing. Smoking also has a direct impact on childhood wellbeing, health equity, financial wellbeing and the mental wellbeing of New Zealanders. See our summary at the end of this email.


How do I submit?

Making a submission is easy and can be done the following ways:


1. Stats NZ online survey

2. Stats NZ Facebook page comments

3. A short poll and comment box on Stats NZ website

4. Email a written submission to indicators@stats.govt.nz
