ACC does not routinely disclose data below a certain level. Accordingly, we have used ‘<4’ (fewer than
four) where the claim count is between one and three. This limits the potential for particular individuals
or matters specific to certain individuals being identified. This decision is made under section 9(2)(a) of
the Act. In doing so, we have considered the public interest in making the information available and
have determined that it does not outweigh the need to protect the privacy of these individuals. We are happy to answer your questions
If you have any questions, you can email me at [email address].
If you are not happy with this response, you have the right to make a complaint to the Ombudsman.
Information about how to do this is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
