Perinatal Health Indicators for Canada - 2011

This report was produced by the Public Health Agency of Canada's Canadian Perinatal Surveillance System (CPSS) to update data on key perinatal health indicators described in the Canadian Perinatal Health Report, 2008 Edition, and provide current information on major determinants and outcomes of maternal, fetal and infant health in Canada.

This report includes data from the birth registries up to 2008, death registries up to 2007, the birth-death linked database up to 2005 (birth year), the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI)'s Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) up to 2009/2010 (fiscal year), and the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) up to 2010. Numbers based on vital statistics or hospital databases may be different from those published by Statistics Canada or CIHI because of database updating (e.g., elimination of duplicates) or because of differences in inclusion and exclusion criteria.

The report is available on request from: CPSS-SCSP@phac-aspc.gc.ca
