Chronic Disease Infobase profiles the epidemiology of major non-communicable diseases in Canada, including the most current cancers; and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases; by province/territory and by regional health unit. Demographic, mortality, morbidity, risk factor and related health care data are currently available. Chronic Disease Infobase uses advanced information technology to provide dynamic access to an extensive database. Every page that is generated retrieves data from the database on the fly, which means that every time you come back to Chronic Disease Infobase, you may get new information; since the database is updated as data become available.
Chronic Disease Infobase provides several display options. Multiple area comparisons, morbidity and mortality time trends, birth cohort mortality trends and proportional mortality trends are just some of the options. Thematic mapping with user friendly options is also available.
