    Description:

    The objective of this study is to report the population rate of surgical treatment of incident primary female breast tumours diagnosed from 2010 to 2012 overall, and by disease stage in Canada (excluding Quebec). This study uses newly linked Canadian Cancer Registry and hospital discharge data, created in the Canadian Cancer Treatment Linkage Project by Statistics Canada in 2016.

    Description:

    This study describes acute care hospitalizations for mental/behavioural disorders among First Nations people living on and off reserve. The 2006 Census was linked to the Discharge Abstract Database from 2006/2007 through 2008/2009 for all provinces (except Ontario and Quebec) and the three territories. Hospitalizations for seven types of disorders were identified.

    Description:

    Health disparities between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal populations in Canada, including differences in life expectancies, have clearly been established. A variety of sources is currently used to measure and document these disparities, yet information gaps persist. Because of limited coverage and sample sizes, reliable health information that reflects the diversity in Canada's Aboriginal population is not always available. By assigning 2001 Census data for small geographical areas to hospital discharge records from the 2001/2002 Hospital Morbidity Database, this report provides estimates of morbidity serious enough to require hospitalization. Acute-care hospitalizations of people living in areas with a relatively high percentage of Aboriginal residents are compared with hospitalizations of residents of areas where the percentage of Aboriginal residents is low. Variations by predominant Aboriginal identity in these areas - First Nations, Métis and Inuit populations -are also explored. Factors that potentially underlie differences in hospitalization rates between residents of high- and low-Aboriginal areas are determined by adjusting for urban/rural residence and area socio-economic characteristics.

    Description:

    Approaches used to select records for tabulation of national injury hospitalization data were identified. Three of the approaches were based on the principal diagnosis in the hospital separation record; the other three required that the record contain a code for an external cause of injury. Differences within these two main groups resulted in identification of six distinct approaches. Each approach was applied to the same set of hospital separation data. The numbers and types of injury records retrieved with the six approaches are compared and implications of the findings for injury surveillance are discussed.

    Description:

    This article examines the substantial increase in the numbers and rates of hip and knee replacements among seniors between 1981-82 and 1998-99, while also looking at the decline in the length of stay for both procedures. This increase in joint replacement surgery was evident for both sexes and in all senior age groups, although rates were consistently higher for women.

    Description:

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    The Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) is one of the key data holdings held by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). The institute is a national, not-for-profit organization, which plays a critical role in the development of Canada's health information system. The DAD contains acute care discharge data from most Canadian hospitals. The data generated are essential for determining, for example, the number and types of procedures and the length of hospital stays. CIHI is conducting the first national data quality study of selected clinical and administrative data from the DAD. This study is evaluating and measuring the accuracy of the DAD by returning to the original data sources and comparing this information with what exists in the CIHI database, in order to identify any discrepancies and their associated reasons. This paper describes the DAD data quality study and some preliminary findings. The findings are also briefly compared with another similar study. In conclusion, the paper discusses subsequent steps for the study and how the findings from the first year are contributing to improvements in the quality of the DAD.

    Description:

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    Since 1965, the National Center for Health Statistics has conducted the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS), a national probability sample survey of discharges from non-federal, short-stay and general hospitals. A major aspect of the NHDS redesign in 1988 was to use electronic data from abstracting service organizations and state data systems. This paper presents an overview of the development of the NHDS and the 1988 redesign. Survey methodologies are reviewed in light of the data collection and processing issues arising from the combination of "manually" abstracted data and "automated" data. Methods for assessing the overall quality and accuracy of the NHDS data are discussed for both data collection modes. These methods include procedures to ensure that incoming data meet established standards and that abstracted data are processed and coded according to strict quality control procedures. These procedures are presented in the context of issues and findings from the broader literature about the quality of hospital administrative data sets.

    Description:

    Males' suicide rate was four times that of females, but females were hospitalized for attempted suicide at about one and a half times the rate of males in 1998/99. About 9% of people who were hospitalized for an attempted suicide that year had been discharged more than once for a suicide attempt in the same year.

    Description:

    This is the second version of the Statistical report on the health of Canadians. Like the original in 1996, this report provides a comprehensive and detailed statistical overview of the health status of Canadians and the major determinants of that status. The original report was created for the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Advisory Committee on Population Health, which has also commissioned this update. The broad purpose of the report is to help policy-makers and program planners identify priority issues and measure progress in the domain of population health.

    The Statistical report is meant to be a tool for learning as well as planning. The data identify populations at risk; suggest associations between health determinants, health status, and population characteristics; raise questions about the reasons for the widespread differences among the provinces and territories; and illustrate areas where Canada's health information system is robust, and others where it is relatively weak. These and other themes are touched on in the 11 section introductions of the Statistical Report and developed more fully in the companion publication, Toward a healthy future: second report on the health of Canadians. These publications are available at the Health Canada web site at: http://www.hc-sc.ca.

    Description:

    As the availability of both health utilization and outcome information becomes increasingly important to health care researchers and policy makers, the ability to link person-specific health data becomes a critical objective. This type of linkage of population-based administrative health databases has been realized in British Columbia. The database was created by constructing an historical file of all persons registered with the health care system, and then by probabilistically linking various program files to this 'coordinating' file. The first phase of development included the linkage of hospital discharge data, physician billing data, continuing care data, data about drug costs for the elderly, births data and deaths data. The second phase of development has seen the addition data sources external to the Ministry of Health including cancer incidence data, workers' compensation data, and income assistance data.
