This graph shows the different rates of preventable hospital admissions for Māori, Pacific and other ethnicities combined in 2011-12. Preventable hospital admissions are those that occur when people present themselves at hospitals with health conditions that could potentially have been treated and resolved at an earlier stage by public or primary health practitioners. Pacific people had the highest rate of preventable admissions, closely followed by Māori. Asian people and other ethnicities combined had much lower rates.
