Graphic Monday: Health in Canadian cities
This week, we take a look at selected health indicators in Canadian cities.
Using the graphic below, you can rank cities by the prevalence of different health problems.
Aside from a list of health problems though, it’s important to know, how healthy do people feel?
While this is perhaps a less clear-cut question than asking whether someone has asthma, for example, the results are interesting.
More than 16 per cent of respondents living in Brantford, Ontario, report their overall health as fair or poor. Around 15 per cent of respondents from Moncton say the same. People from Quebec City are the least likely to report their health as only fair or poor.
All data comes from Statistics Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey 2009-2010 estimates. Data is reported by “census metropolitan area.”
