New features

Regional level data are now available from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) 2000/01 for both new, and previously released indicators which were based on the National Population Health Survey. Existing tables have also been updated with data for the territories from the NPHS-northern component (1994/95 and 1996/97). New and updated data tables are listed below.

Time-series data at the Canada, province and territorial level have been added for the following: life expectancy, infant mortality, low birth weight, age-standardized mortality rates, age-standardized cancer incidence rates, and potential years of life lost (PYLL).

Highlights have been added for CCHS-based indicators. The concept of health region peer group has been used to provide a useful context for this level of analysis. Maps have been added within the Data Tables section for these indicators. Highlights are also available for the NPHS-North.
