Health Statistics Division and the Census Internet Development team have updated the online product Health Profile, February 2011 (which was last updated in June of 2010) with the latest health region-level data for life expectancy and mortality by selected causes. A series of indicators based on hospitalization data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) have also been added: see What’s new? on the left-hand side bar of the Health Profile home page for details.
