ACC does not disclose data below a certain level to protect the privacy of
individuals. This decision is made under section 9(2)(a) of the Official
Information Act 1982. Accordingly, we have used the value <4 where the
claim count is between one and three. This limits the potential for
particular individuals or matters specific to certain individuals from
being identified. Withholding in this way is necessary to protect the
privacy of these individuals. 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.
