The Health and Lifestyles Survey is conducted by the Health Promotion Agency / Te Hiringa Hauora (HPA) to collect New Zealanders’ views and experiences with a number of health and lifestyle topics including alcohol, tobacco, gambling, nutrition, Māori cultural identity, mental health & wellbeing and sun exposure. The data from this survey is used to develop ways to help New Zealanders live healthily in their everyday lives. The survey is carried out by face-to-face interviews and has been conducted every two years since 2008.
We worked with HPA to create Kupe, a web-based dashboard that generates interactive data visualisations of the survey results. The dashboard enables users to explore different health and lifestyle topics and compare results between survey years and subgroups.
