  • Data Visualization: 71-607-X2021028
    Description:

    The dashboard presents data that are relevant for monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on mortality in Canada. It includes the latest weekly death data, historical weekly death data back to 2014, updated adjusted (i.e. the estimated number of weekly deaths) and expected weekly death counts produced for the 2020 reference year from the Canadian Vital Statistics: Death database (CVS:D). The CVS:D is an administrative survey that collects demographic and medical (cause of death) information from all provincial and territorial vital statistics registries on all deaths in Canada. With this tool, data users can explore current and historical weekly trends of deaths for each province and territory. Key variables such as age group and sex are also presented in interactive charts. The interactive tool allows users to examine excess deaths by comparing the trend in weekly deaths in 2020 to the trends in weekly deaths in previous years.

    Description:

    Despite extensive research on health disparities, a limited number of studies have examined First Nations people’s mortality on a national scale, particularly those examining specific causes of death. This analysis attempts to fill the information gap using linked mortality data from the 2006 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort to calculate the number and rates of deaths for a 10-year follow-up period for on- and off-reserve First Nations people and the non-Indigenous population, by sex, age and region.

    Description:

    The Report on the Demographic Situation in Canada analyses recent demographic patterns at the national, provincial and subprovincial levels. Trends in population growth and the evolution of the various components of Canada's population growth - fertility, mortality and migration (interprovincial and international) - as well as marital status, are examined. The Report on the Demographic Situation in Canada has been published annually or biennially since 1985. Beginning in 2011, the Report is available as a dynamic, internet-only publication in order to provide the most recent data and analyses on Canadian demographics as soon as they are available.

    Description:

    This study seeks to measure the reduction in life expectancy at birth as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, both nationally and in affected provinces. In Canada, deaths attributed to COVID-19 contribute to a projected reduction in life expectancy at birth of 0.41 years in 2020. Estimates of life expectancy in 2020, which will be available at a later date, will show both the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic.

    Description:

    The purpose of this study was to assess the risk of non accidental and cause specific mortality associated with long term exposure to PM2.5 among immigrants after they arrived in Canada, and to assess how this risk compares with that of the non immigrant population. Using the Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort, this study also sought to determine the influence of several immigrant specific variables on the PM2.5 -mortality association, including duration in Canada, country of birth, age at immigration and neighbourhood ethnic concentration.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900500001
    Description:

    This study uses the new remoteness index (RI) classification, which assigns a value to each census subdivision (CSD) and measures the relative remoteness of Canadian communities on the basis of their size and their proximity to surrounding population centres, to distinguish rural and remote areas from urban areas in Canada. The Canadian Vital Statistics-Death Database (2011 to 2015), and the 2016 Census of Population are also used in this study to examine major causes of both preventable and treatable mortality by relative remoteness of Canadian communities. It explores the interrelationship between remoteness and avoidable mortality while taking into account three important variables: average household income after-tax, the proportion of postsecondary graduates and the proportion of Aboriginal population by CSD.

    Description:

    Findings from a new report indicate that those dying from preventable illicit drug overdoses in British Columbia are a diverse population. This group encompasses people that have no touch points with either the hospital, employment, social income assistance or justice systems in the years prior to fatal overdose. Yet at the opposite end of the spectrum, it also comprises individuals who have multiple touch points with at least one of these systems.

    Table: 84-208-X
    Description:

    This publication contains statistical tables showing the number of deaths by age, sex and underlying cause for Canada (and by sex for the provinces for 1999 and earlier).

    Underlying cause of death is defined as the disease or injury which initiated the train of morbid events leading directly to death, or the circumstances of the accident or violence which produced the fatal injury. The underlying cause is selected from a number of conditions listed on the medical certificate of death.

    The underlying cause is presented by the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) codes, established by the World Health Organization (WHO, 1992). Beginning in 2000, causes of death in Canada are coded according to the 10th revision of the Classification, referred to as ICD-10. The previous revision, ICD-9 (WHO, 1977), was used for the classification of cause of death in Canada from 1979 to 1999.

    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.

    Description:

    Time series studies have shown associations between air pollution concentrations and morbidity and mortality. These studies have largely been conducted within single cities, and with varying methods. Critics of these studies have questioned the validity of the data sets used and the statistical techniques applied to them; the critics have noted inconsistencies in findings among studies and even in independent re-analyses of data from the same city. In this paper we review some of the statistical methods used to analyze a subset of a national data base of air pollution, mortality and weather assembled during the National Morbidity and Mortality Air Pollution Study (NMMAPS).
