- Health effects relating to the indoor environment
We have released new factsheets about the indoor environment: asthma, lower respiratory tract infections, SUDI, and maternal smoking at two weeks after birth. These show that household crowding, second-hand smoke exposure, and poor quality housing continue to affect New Zealanders' health. Visit the Indoor Environment indicators for more information.

In 2014, 376 people died from melanoma, and 145 people died from non-melanoma skin cancer, in New Zealand. New Zealand has one of the highest rates of melanoma incidence and mortality in the world. Visit the UV exposure indicators to download the factsheets.
