Health Reports is a quarterly journal produced by the Health Statistics Division at Statistics Canada.  It is designed for a broad audience that includes health professionals, researchers, policy-makers, educators, and students.  Its mission is to provide high quality, relevant, and comprehensive information on the health status of the population and on the health care system.  The journal publishes articles of wide interest that contain original and timely analyses of health and vital statistics data.  The sources of data are typically national or provincial/territorial administrative databases or surveys.

Health Reports contains Research Articles and Health Matters. Research Articles present in-depth analysis and undergo anonymous peer review.  Health Matters are shorter, descriptive reports, largely based on survey and administrative data from Health Statistics Division.  All articles are indexed in Index Medicus and MEDLINE.
