The Health of Inuit Children: Report - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 89-627-X2007003


This report uses the Children and Youth component of the 2001 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS) to provide information on the health of Inuit children (aged less than 15). Specific themes covered include: breastfeeding, health status, chronic conditions, dental care, eating breakfast, and access to health care. Results are presented for all Inuit and specifically for those in the four Inuit land claim settlement regions in the Arctic: Nunatsiavut in northern Labrador, the territory of Nunavut, Nunavik in northern Quebec, and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the Northwest Territories. Where possible, results for Inuit children are compared to those of North American Indian, Métis and all Canadian children.
