    Description:

    For decades, researchers have reported high suicide rates among Aboriginal youth, which are several times higher than rates in the non-Aboriginal population. Based on the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey, this article presents estimates of suicidal thoughts among off-reserve First Nations, Métis and Inuit adults aged 18 to 25. It examines associations between past-year suicidal thoughts and mental disorders and personality factors, childhood experiences and family characteristics, and socio-demographic characteristics, many of which have been shown to be related to suicidal thoughts in other populations.

    Description:

    Suicide rates are significantly higher among First Nations, Métis and Inuit than among the non-Aboriginal population, particularly for younger age groups. Suicidal thoughts, which precede suicide attempts and completions, have been reported to be higher in some Aboriginal groups compared to the non-Aboriginal population. This factsheet presents prevalence of lifetime and past-year suicidal thoughts among off-reserve First Nations, Métis and Inuit in three adult age groups (18-25, 26-59 and 65+ years), by sex, and where possible, in comparison to those of non-Aboriginal adults.

    Description:

    The health and well-being of the Inuit population falls below that of the total population in Canada (Chief Public Health Officer, 2008). Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami—the national organization of Inuit in Canada—has stated that “this health gap in many respects is a symptom of poor socio-economic conditions in Inuit communities which are characterized by high poverty rates, low levels of education, limited employment opportunities, and inadequate housing conditions” (Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, 2014). These factors are known as social determinants of health.

    This study examines the social determinants of health for Inuit aged 15 to 54 years, living in Inuit Nunangat. Data were taken from the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Multivariate analysis was conducted using a logistic regression model, in order to test the association between the social determinants of health and the outcome of excellent or very good self-reported health.
