    Description:

    This study describes the size and age structure of the Canadian veteran population forecasted by Veterans Affairs Canada. Veteran health was examined for two eras of Regular Force veterans. The health of earlier-era veterans (released between 1954 and 2003) was examined using the 2003 Canadian Community Health Survey. The health of recent-era veterans (released between 1998 and 2012) was examined using the 2013 Life After Service Survey. Health indicators for veterans were compared with the Canadian general population.

  • Articles and reports: 15-206-X2014034
    Description:

    Recent discussions about health care spending have focused on two issues: 1) the extent to which the increase in heath care spending is due to an increase in the quantity as opposed to the price of health care services, and 2) the efficiency and productivity of health care providers (e.g., hospital sectors, office of physicians, and long-term care).

    The key to addressing both issues is a direct output measure of health care services—a measure that does not currently exist. In the National Accounts, output of the health care sector is measured by the volume of inputs, which includes labour costs for physicians, nurses and administrative staff, consumption of capital, and intermediate inputs. An input-based output measure assumes that there are no productivity gains in the health care sector. As a result, it does not provide a measure of productivity performance, nor does it allow a decomposition of total health care expenditures into price and output quantity components.

    The main objective of this paper is to develop an experimental direct output measure for the Canadian hospital sector that can be used to address those issues. A large number of countries have already constructed a direct output measure of the hospital sector and other healthcare sectors.

    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.
