Canterbury Wellbeing Index

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index monitors wellbeing and tracks the progress of social recovery from the 2010/11 earthquakes, using indicators to identify emerging social trends and issues. It provides accurate and robust information to the Canterbury DHB, partner agencies and the community.

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index consists of a range of indicators structured around health, knowledge and skills, economic wellbeing, social connectedness, civil participation, housing, safety and people.

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index is updated and revised annually and was first published in June 2013.

The Canterbury Wellbeing Index will be reviewed in 2017 so the 2017 volume of the Index will not be produced. Instead Community and Public Health will come together with partner agencies to consider the purpose and content of the Index within the context of other monitoring activities.
