Dear Ministry of Health,

Is it known approximately, how many children whose whānau identify as Māori have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder currently living in New Zealand?

If known, what percentage are from Te Tairāwhiti region?

If an individual wanted to persue data collection in this area does MOH have funding provisions to support this type of initiative?

Yours faithfully,
