Canterbury Wellbeing Index

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index brings together high quality information about community wellbeing in Christchurch City, Selwyn District and Waimakariri District.

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index is now available online and is organised into three main sections:

  • Our Wellbeing – describing the wellbeing of the greater Christchurch population across 57 indicators, organised into ten domains;
  • He Tohu Ora – focusing on Māori conceptualisations of wellbeing across 19 indicators; and
  • Our Population – describing the population of greater Christchurch across ten indicators.

The Index draws from the data of many local and national agencies and incorporates information from the Canterbury Wellbeing Survey. The Index is progressively updated as new data becomes available.

History of the Canterbury Wellbeing Index

The Index was initially produced by the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) annually from 2013 to 2015. Community and Public Health have produced the Index since CERA was disestablished in 2016.

No Index was produced in 2017, as a comprehensive review of the Index was undertaken by Canterbury DHB, with the assistance of partner agencies. The online version of the Canterbury Wellbeing Index was launched in November 2018.
