We don’t often hear the phrase “eligible population” any more, but it still exists.
It’s the population as deemed “eligible” for the Covid Vaccine by MoH/HNZ. It excludes lots of people from its count, including anyone who hasn’t engaged with their Health Provider (GP etc) within a certain timeframe.
The HSU Spreadsheet is available here:
According to that spreadsheet, the “Eligible Population” of NZ is 4,970,149.
StatsNZ has a higher number, the FigureNZ data can be found here, and gives a total population of 5,124,100.
Both spreadsheets provide population breakdown by age group and the HSU one tells us the number of people who have had a Partial Vaccination, Completed Primary Course (Fully Vaccinated) and how many have had a Booster.
By adding in the difference between the HSU cohort and the StatsNZ one, we find the missing Unvaccinated people. It changes the per-100k graphs somewhat, as these rely on the Population of each cohort.
With the HSU data, the Unvaccinated cohort has significantly worse results.
