[In New Zealand, police homicide statistics (criminal charges laid, outstanding and processed) can vary greatly from public health statistics (hospital and coroner's records of actual mortality due to assault). The police definition of homicide includes murder (completed), attempted murder (uncompleted), manslaughter, infanticide, abortion, and aiding suicide/pact. Within this, 'murder' includes conspiracy to murder, and incite/counsel/attempt to procure murder. For an accurate count of deceased victims of homicide, public health figures may be more reliable.]
