In general, Canada is a prosperous country with a healthy population. We enjoy a high quality of life, a wealth of natural resources and a strong economy. Yet, not all Canadians are benefiting from the strong economy and not all Canadians are equally healthy.

Reducing Gaps in Health: A Focus on Socio-Economic Status in Urban Canada provides a broad overview of the links between socio-economic status and health in 15 Canadian census metropolitan areas (CMAs), while exploring socio-economic patterns and gradients within those CMAs and across urban Canada.

Using a deprivation index for health in Canada developed by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ), Reducing Gaps in Health provides analyses of a broad range of health-related indicators from CIHI's Discharge Abstract Database and National Trauma Registry and a subset of Statistics Canada's Census and Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS). More specifically, the report examines hospitalization rates and self-reported health percentages within and across the 15 CMAs for three socio-economic status groups (low-, average- and high- socio-economic status).
