Tçnâ koe Scott,

Thank you for your OIA request to the Department of Internal Affairs (included with this email)

The Department is already responding to an FYI.org.nz request that includes the information you have requested. We are therefore partially refusing your request in respect of this information in accordance with section 18(d) of the Official Information Act, as the information is soon to be publicly available.

You will be able to find the Department's response at the below address when posted:

https://fyi.org.nz/request/12583-number-....

Death statistics for April 2020 are not available as at the time of your request. April statistics will not be able to be collated until several weeks into the month of May 2020. Please confirm whether you wish the Department to provide statistics for the month of April, or whether the statistics for the past five years to end March will be sufficient to meet your information needs.

COVID-19
To help stop the spread of COVID-19, most of our staff are working from home. This means it may take us a little longer to process your Official Information Act request. In some cases we may need to extend the timeframe for response and will let you know if this applies to your request.
Read more information and updates from the Ombudsman about Official Information Act processing.

In cases where the Department’s response provides information that is identified to be of general public interest, the response may also be published on the Department of Internal Affairs website. If the Department publishes its response to your OIA request, all personal information, including your name and contact details, will be removed.

Dear Emma Atkins,

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I would like the data for April 2020 when it is available. If it is possible to give this data as number of deaths registered per week, as that other person has requested, I would prefer it in that format. If not, I will accept it as a monthly total.

Yours sincerely,

Scott

Thanks Scott, I will register that for when the info can be collated.

The request noted below actually agreed to monthly data, sorry I should have specified that. Monthly data is cleaner in the sense there is less risk of any overlap or duplication, providing more concise data. Monthly data will be collated for April when possible, I will let you know an eta when I have one.

Thanks Emma
