    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Over 80 indicators measure the health of the Canadian population and the effectiveness of the health care system. Designed to provide comparable information at the health region and provincial/territorial levels, these data are produced from a wide range of the most recently available sources.

    This Internet publication is produced by Statistics Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201801000003
    Description:

    The purpose of this study is to identify the factors associated with non-vaccination and the reasons why Canadian adults did not get the influenza vaccine in 2013/2014. Data from the 2013/2014 Canadian Community Health Survey were used.

    Description:

    Statistics shown in this fact sheet come from vital statistics Canadian death database. These data are collected from all provincial and territorial vital statistics registries and contain demographic and medical (cause of death) information on all deaths in Canada.

  • Stats in brief: 82-625-X201000111105
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The influenza vaccine provides protection against viruses that cause the flu, a highly contagious respiratory infection. Individuals who have been immunized may contract the flu, but the illness will be milder. Health Canada recommends getting a flu shot every year. Because the many strains of influenza change over time, each year a new vaccine is produced to target the three most common strains predicted for the coming season.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X200601010355
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This article reports recent trends in influenza vaccination rates in Canada, provides data on predictors of vaccination for 2005, and examines longer-term effects of Ontario's universal influenza immunization program on vaccine uptake. The data are from the 1996/1997 National Population Health Survey and the 2000/2001, 2003 and 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X20050029195
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    As well as sub-zero temperatures and snowstorms, flu viruses arrive with the Canadian winter. Healthy people usually recover from the fever, cough, headache and other symptoms in less than a week. But some "especially seniors and those with lung or cardiac conditions" may have more severe cases of the flu and may even need to be hospitalized.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 84-548-X
    Description:

    This report describes the design, methodology, and results of the first study undertaken by Statistics Canada to measure the impact on Canadian cause of death trends of a new revision of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

    Using 1999 Canadian mortality data, Statistics Canada carried out a comparability, or "bridge-coding", study by dual-coding deaths to both the Ninth and Tenth Revisions of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9 and ICD-10). The preliminary results of this exercise were used to generate comparability ratios; these ratios measure the net effect of the new revision, with ratios above 1.00 indicating a net increase in deaths classified to a cause of death, and ratios below 1.00 indicating a net decrease.

    The comparability ratios derived from dual-coding medical certificates of cause of death presented in this report estimate the size and direction of the disruption to cause of death trends due to the implementation of ICD-10. Researchers and analysts using Canadian mortality data should use these summary measures to calculate comparability-modified death counts and mortality rates to bridge the gap between ICD-9 and ICD-10.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X20030026830
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In 2000/01, 28% of Canadians aged 20 or older reported having had a flu shot in the previous year, up from 16% in 1996/97. Close to two-thirds of seniors and one-half of people with chronic conditions had been vaccinated. Among the minority of seniors who did not get a flu shot, the main reason for not getting a shot was that they thought it was unnecessary.

  • Table: 84-214-X
    Description:

    This compendium of vital statistics includes summary data on births, deaths, marriages and divorces. The introduction covers the data sources, data quality, and methods pertaining to each event, and includes a glossary defining the terms used. The first chapter is a brief overview of vital statistics for 1996. Subsequent chapters treat marriage, divorce, birth, fetal and infant mortality, total mortality, causes of death, vital statistics by census division, and international comparisons. Most charts and tables show Canada data for 1986 though 1996, while the charts and tables for causes of death show Canada data for 1979 through1996. Data for the provinces and territories are usually shown for 1995 and 1996. Appendices include population denominator data, age-standardized mortality rate (ASMR) calculation methods, and leading causes of death methodology.
