Hospitalization Disparities by Socio-Economic Status for Males and Females Core

Hospitalization Disparities by Socio-Economic Status for Males and Females

Research, including previous CPHI analyses (Reducing Gaps in Health report, 2008), has demonstrated consistently higher hospitalization rates for people from lower socio-economic areas. New analyses presented in this report expand on those findings by examining the size and cost of disparities in hospitalization rates between socio-economic status groups across Canada's 33 largest cities.

Since research has shown the relationship between socio-economic status and health to differ by sex, results are presented separately for males and females. The foci of the analysis are ambulatory care sensitive conditions and mental illness - conditions for which hospitalization could potentially be avoided with adequate primary health care.

The following data tables provide detailed information on hospitalization disparities to supplement analyses presented in the Analysis in Brief Hospitalization Disparities by Socio-Economic Status for Males and Females. The Excel spreadsheets below provide age-standardized hospitalization rates for ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) and mental illness based on the material, social and combined (material and social) components of the INSPQ Deprivation Index in Canada's census metropolitan areas. For more information on the deprivation index, definitions for mental illness hospitalizations and ACSCs, see the Analysis in Brief.
