  • Data Visualization: 71-607-X2024004
    Description: This dashboard presents data that are relevant for monitoring mortality in Canada. The interactive visualization within the dashboard features insights on weekly death trends from the Canadian Vital Statistics - Death (CVSD) database.
    Release date: 2024-03-14

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202301200002
    Description: The validity of survival estimates from cancer registry data depends, in part, on the identification of the deaths of deceased cancer patients. People whose deaths are missed seemingly live on forever and are informally referred to as “immortals”, and their presence in registry data can result in inflated survival estimates. This study assesses the issue of immortals in the Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR) using a recently proposed method that compares the survival of long-term survivors of cancers for which “statistical” cure has been reported with that of similar people from the general population.

  • 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.

  • Table: 84-537-X
    Description: This electronic publication contains life tables comprising life expectancy and related estimates by age and sex for Canada, the provinces and territories. Detailed estimates (by single year of age) have been produced for Canada and all of the provinces, except Prince Edward Island, based on two types of complete life tables: three-year estimates (for periods of consecutive three years) and single-year estimates. Aggregated estimates (by five-year age group) have been produced for Prince Edward Island and the three territories separately based on abridged life tables (three-year estimates).

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202200900002
    Description:

    National health surveys and vital statistics registries are the cornerstones of surveillance, monitoring and policy development in most developed countries. This cohort profile describes the linkage of the Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition (2004) to the Canadian Vital Statistics - Death Database (2011). Further, the authors demonstrate how these data can be used in terms of potential analysis strategies, and discuss their strengths and limitations-considerations that could apply to any national nutrition survey worldwide.

    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:

    Cancer incidence rates have been shown to vary by ethnicity, and the increasing awareness of and interest in reporting ethnic health inequalities have been growing internationally. The objective of this study was to assess cancer incidence and mortality rates by ethnicity in Canada. The study used the 2006 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort, linked to the Canadian Cancer Registry and the Canadian Vital Statistics-Death Database, to determine cancer cases and mortality from 2006 to 2016. Ethnicity was categorized as non-Indigenous North American (NINA); European; Caribbean; Latin, Central and South American (LCSA); African; East Asian; South Asian; and West Central Asian and Middle Eastern.

    Description:

    The risks of mortality due to COVID-19 have been found to be higher for some Canadians (e.g., older population, especially those living in long term care residences, etc.). For Canadians living in close quarters there could also be an increased risk. This article examines the rate of mortality due to COVID-19 associated with people living in different types of private dwellings in Quebec and Ontario. Additionally, the size of the household and the living arrangements are also explored among individuals.
