    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    About one in five Canadians have suffered from a mental condition at some point in their lives. Like other health conditions, mental conditions represent an economic burden to society, and costs are often comparable to physical conditions such as heart disease. Expenditures on mental conditions and addictions for Canadian provinces in 2003/2004 were $6.6 billion, of which $5.5 billion was from public sources.

    Major psychiatric conditions are often associated with physical comorbidity - in particular, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and respiratory conditions. Reasons for this association are diverse, and not fully understood. Many health conditions increase the risk for a mental condition. Mental comorbidity can complicate help-seeking, diagnosis, and treatment, and it influences prognosis. Hence understanding the burden of mental conditions as a comorbid condition among those with physical morbidities is important.

    This report represents an assessment of a comprehensive set of factors associated with acute-care hospitalizations for mental conditions in Canada. The first part explores the overall burden of a mental condition as the most responsible condition (the condition considered most responsible for the hospitalization) and as a comorbid condition (a diagnosed condition other than the most responsible for the hospitalization) in acute-care hospitals in Canada. It presents the number of hospitalizations, the number of hospital days and the average length of stay of a hospitalization. In the second part, linked health survey and hospital data are used to describe the socioeconomic and lifestyle factor characteristics of patients who were admitted to an acute-care hospital with a mental condition within four years after responding to the survey.

    Description:

    A Profile of Education for Children with Disabilities is an article concerning the educational experiences of children aged 5 to 14 that were identified as having one or more disabilities on the 2006 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) and who attended school at the time of the 2006 Census. These experiences were measured using the responses of parents or guardians to the PALS, a post-censal survey conducted shortly after the 2001 and 2006 Census. Issues examined include the prevalence of specialized education, difficulties obtaining specialized education, met and unmet educational needs, and resulting outcomes.

    Description:

    The Internet publication, Mental Health and Well-being, from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) provides cross-sectional estimates at provincial and national levels. Topics include the prevalence of various mental disorders (depression, mania, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social phobia), mental health problems (alcohol and illicit drug dependence, gambling, suicide, eating trouble) and access to and use of mental health care services in the past 12 months.

    The survey also collects information on many determinants and correlates of mental health such as socio-demographic information, income, stress, medication use and social support.

    Data were collected from close to 37,000 respondents, aged 15 or older, residing in households in each province.

    Description:

    The 2001 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) is a post-censal survey of adults and children whose everyday activities may be limited because of a condition or health problem. A sample of those persons who answered 'Yes' to the 2001 Census disability filter questions were included in the PALS Survey population. Approximately 35,000 adults and 8,000 children living in private and some collective households in the 10 provinces were selected to participate in the survey. The data was collected after the 2001 Census, in the fall of 2001.

    This paper presents initial results on the number of persons with disabilities, disability rates as well as the type and severity of disability, by age and sex, for Canada and the provinces.

    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.

    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:

    The primary goal of this chapter is to improve our understanding of the roles that family structure and low-income play in the determination of psychiatric disorders, poor school performance, and social problems among Canadian children. While there is broad agreement that environmental factors have an impact on these outcomes, until recently there has been little or no Canadian data with which to assess the importance of socio-economic factors in determining the incidence and severity of such problems.

    Description:

    Since the early 1980s, in relation to the size of the population,g eneral and psychiatric hospitals have seen a drop in separations for mental disorders. This trend relects a tendency throughout the 1980s and early 1990s to hospitalize only patients with more serious mental disorders. As a result, the average length of stay in both types of institutions has risen, as has the total number of days of care for mental disorders.
