Dear David Parker and Andrew Little,

I am writing to bring to your attention an aspect of the Chief Coroner (Deborah Marshall)'s latest annual provisional suicide statistics and her media release about them. (The url misleadingly mentions "2020" instead of "2019", by the way.) I will start by quoting her entire media release, which is fairly brief:

 

'Media Release – 26 August 2019

CHIEF CORONER RELEASES PROVISIONAL ANNUAL SUICIDE FIGURES

Chief Coroner Judge Deborah Marshall today released the annual provisional suicide statistics, which show the suicide rate slightly increased in the last year.

In the 2017/18 year the rate was 13.67 deaths per 100,000 people; that has increased to 13.93 in 2018/19.

In the year to 30 June, 685 people died by suicide, compared to 668 the year before - an increase of 17 deaths by suicide.

“I extend my condolences to the families and friends of those who died by suicide in the past year,” Judge Marshall says. “We acknowledge the pain many communities are feeling as a result.”

There was an increase in the number of young people dying by suicide, particularly in the 15-19 age range (up from 53 to 73) and the 20-24 age range (from 76 to 91). Both rates increased from 16.88 to 23.14 and from 21.21 to 26.87 respectively.

The was also an increase in the Maori and Pacific Island suicide rate. The Maori suicide rate increased from 23.72 to 28.23 (142 to 169 deaths), and the Pacific Island rate from 7.77 to 11.49 deaths per 100,000 people (23 to 34 deaths). There was a drop in the European rate though, from 13.94 to 13.46 (down from 462 to 446 deaths).

“The reasons people make this decision are numerous and depend on many factors: their early life experiences at home and at school, their employment status, their mental health, their economic and health status, their sense of belonging, their sense of purpose, their worldview and more.

“It’s up to all of us to look out for our family, friends and neighbours – to ask how they’re going and coping with pressures in life, and offer our support, to offer hope.

“Because there is hope. I’m encouraged by the suicide prevention initiatives taking place, the conversations people are having, and the success stories of individuals who battled with suicidal thoughts but have come through stronger the other side.

“We mourn those who died by suicide, but for those listening who are in the midst of pain, suicide doesn’t have to be how your story ends. The truth is there is always another option, there are people you can speak to, there’s something more to live for.”

Please note:

The information provided relates to provisional suicide figures and will slightly differ from the Ministry of Health figures. They include active cases before Coroners where intent has yet to be established therefore may eventually be found not to be suicides. In addition, Ministry of Health figures are recorded by calendar year.

The statistics themselves consist of nine tables or figures, as follows:

  1. Table 1: Provisional suicide deaths and rates per 100,000 population between July 2007 and June 2019

  2. Table 2: Provisional suicide deaths by gender and rate per 100,000 population between July 2007 and June 2019

  3. Table 3: Provisional suicide deaths by age group and gender, and rates per 100,000 population, between July 2018 and June 2019

  4. Table 4: Provisional suicide deaths by ethnicity between July 2007 and June 2019

  5. Figure 1: Provisional suicide rates by ethnicity per 100,000 population between July 2007 and June 2019

  6. Table 5: Provisional suicide deaths of Maori ethnicity by age group and gender between July 2007 and June 2019

  7. Figure 2: Provisional suicide deaths by month and national trendline between July 2007 and June 2019

  8. Table 6: Provisional suicide deaths by employment status between July 2007 and June 2019

  9. Table 7: Provisional suicide deaths by District Health Board (DHB) region between July 2007 and June 2019

 

As you can see, these tables and figures break the figures down according to the following statistical factors:

  1. gender

  2. age group

  3. ethnicity

  4. month

  5. employment status and

  6. District Health Board (DHB) region

 

However, her media release highlighted only two features of the statistics: age and ethnicity, and concentrated on increases, rather than absolute rates or comparisons between groups, i.e.:

  1. an increase in the number of young people dying by suicide (i.e. the statistical factor of age) and

  2. an increase in the Maori and Pacific Island suicide rate and a drop in the European rate (i.e. the statistical factor of ethnicity).

 

In other words, the Chief Coroner was selective as to what she chose to mention in her press release. She did not mention gender, which is the topic of Table 2. Nor did she compare the male suicide rate with the female suicide rate. Nor did she mention the Asian suicide rate, or mention that her so-called "European" rate was actually the "European and other" rate. As far as men and women are concerned, her attitude appears to be: only mention women if they appear to be victims and only mention men if they appear to be doing better than women. As far as ethnicity is concerned, her attitude seems to be that anyone apart from Maoris, Pacific Islanders and Europeans don't count.

Here is a comparison of these various factors, as they feature in the actual statistics.

The Chief Coroner was right to focus on those two age-ranges and on the Maori suicide rate, because they were the highest -- both as to suicide rates and as to suicide rate changes since 2018. However, she appears to be racist for mentioning the Pacific Island and European and Other rates, while ignoring the Asian rate. She appears to be sexist for ignoring the fact that the male suicide rate was three times as high as the female rate, and that it had grown, while the female rate had declined. That was despite the fact that the Maori rate was only about twice the European and Other and Pacific Island rates (but four times the Asian rate, which she didn't mention).

 

Predetermination and Evidence-Based Policies

Here we have something which is even worse than predetermination and non-evidence-based policies, which are a huge issue with the current Government -- which is not to say that previous governments were much better. Leftist predetermination typically involves simply assuming that all and only women and minorities are disadvantaged, which leads to the ignoring of evidence or the lack of any attempt to look for evidence in a fair and objective manner. In my email of 21 April 2018 to Andrew Little, I drew your attention to Justice Ministry research (Sentencing in New Zealand: a statistical analysis, by Sue Triggs 1999), which indicated that sentencing discrimination took place against men, but not against Maoris. That research seems to have been ignored, because it is practically unconstitutional in New Zealand to claim that men suffer from anything more than women do, since the de facto New Zealand constitution has predetermined that women are victims of men in all circumstances and that no mere facts can be allowed to undermine that constitutional premise. What makes this government worse is that the Labour Party is basically an alliance of ethnic minorities, women, unionists and Homosexuals, which predetemines that these groups must be found to be the victims in all circumstances.

What is even worse in the case of the Chief Coroner's press release is that it suppresses evidence that could be used to really understand what is happening to cause suicides and to help those particularly affected, such as Maoris, young people and men. By facilitating the ignoring of such evidence, the Chief Coroner is de facto carrying out a policy of gendercide against men. (Similar remarks apply to the other groups which she ignores, as well).

 

Females in Leadership Positions

Now, the Chief Coroner may simply have been following a tradition started by her male predecessors of ignoring male suicide statistics. However, Feminists have made most of their many political gains by claiming that they were motivated by a desire for equality. Therefore it is incumbent on women in leadership positions to implement equality in their work. As you can see from this case, they do not always do so. In fact, I would say that women seldom do implement equality in their work.

This callous hiding of male disadvantage in suicide statistics amounts to treating men as second-class citizens, so that females will continue to appear perpetually to be the only victims -- as Feminist dogma demands. This empowers women and disempowers men in the political process of obtaining policy and law changes. It leads to shorter lives for men and a predominance of women in the electorate, which increases female political power.

In official circles, it is claimed to be a good thing to have more women in leadership positions, but we can see from the example of the Chief Coroner that that is certainly not the case! And that is not an isolated example. I could give many more. For now, however, I will just single out the health sector and the education sector as two areas which are female-dominated, where males are doing worse than females and where there is a huge determination to ignore and/or suppress that fact and to do nothing about it.
