ACC concussion and mild traumatic brain injury claims

I would like a summary datasheet of total ACC claims for the previous 5 years of concussion and mild traumatic brain injury. Further breakdown into how accidents occurred such as sports-related, motor-vehicle related, etc would be very helpful if possible

Currently the burden of concussion and TBI is well known, however statistics for NZ are now 5 years old. Considering the focus NZ and world rugby has had on concussion and brain injury related research, their is potentially an increase in the identification of concussion / mild TBI in the general population leading to an increase in doctor visits, and therefore ACC claims. This dataset may identify this trend and will help inform further research into concussion and mild TBI fields.

Informing future research into the field, and also potentially identify an area of health with increasing burden that may require extra resources and attention.
