MOH say they will not supply any more copies, but this is available as download at www.moh.govt.nz. This report provides the key findings of the 2006/2007New Zealand Health Survey. The study surveyed 4921 children (0 to 14 years) and 12,488 adults (15 years and over). It measured self-reported physical and mental health states, including diagnosed health conditions, modifiable risk and protective factors for health outcomes, and health care services use. Chapter 2, "Health Behaviours and Risk Factors", contains a section, Physical punishment. The child participant’s primary caregiver was asked to provide information about the forms of discipline or punishment used in the past four weeks and which types of punishment they thought were most effective. The findings show that physical punishment was the least popular of the specified discipline strategies. Results by children’s age, ethnic group and gender are also provided. The report notes that this survey information was collected both before and after the repeal of section 59 of the Crimes Act 1961 in May 2007 and notes that for this and other reasons an undercounted results in this section can be expected.
