Chronic Disease Facts and Figures

Chronic Disease and Injury Indicator Framework

The Chronic Disease and Injury Indicator Framework (CDIIF) is a comprehensive pan-Canadian resource on the burden of chronic diseases, injuries and associated determinants. The Framework includes a core set of indicators and specific measures which are grouped into six core domains: Social and environmental determinants, early life/childhood risk and protective factors, behavioural risk and protective factors, risk conditions, disease prevention practices, and health outcomes/status. Through the associated Data Tool, the CDIIF provides pan-Canadian estimates, time trends and data breakdowns by demographic and socioeconomic variables for each of the measures within the Framework.

Positive Mental Health Indicator Framework

The Positive Mental Health Surveillance Indicator Framework (PMHSIF) is a pan-Canadian resource on positive mental health outcomes and associated risk and protective factors. Positive mental health is a state of well-being that allows us to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and deal with the challenges we face. The PMHSIF includes a core set of indicators grouped by positive mental health outcomes and four key domains: individual, family, community and society level determinants. Through the associated Data Tool, the PMHSIF provides pan-Canadian estimates and data breakdown for adults aged 18 and older by key demographic and socioeconomic variables for each of the measures within the Framework. Frameworks for youth and child populations are under development.

Infobase Cubes

Data Cubes are interactive databases that quickly allow users to create tables and graphs using their web browser. These online analytical processing cubes, or OLAP cubes, produce output displayed in a table format with a corresponding graph. The row and column axes of this table contain the "dimensions" of the cube while the "measures" form the values within. Cubes are much like spreadsheets, but they are more dynamic. You can see many dimensions at once by nesting variables under one another. It's like having hundreds of summary cross tabulations at your fingertips.
