National overview

The number of people enrolled at a health provider remained strong in the June 2020 year, with a 2.5%pa rise – in line with the March 2020 year. Net migration has increased in recent months, driven by an influx of returning New Zealanders, with national population growth of 2.1%pa in June 2020. The health and contact tracing focus of the COVID-19 pandemic is likely seeing an increase in the number and accuracy of health enrolment details, meaning that the strength of health enrolments might not be driven purely by an increasing population.
