Much of the research undertaken with data available through the CRDCN is health related. This section was developed to help you find relevant news, publications, and videos. The main datasets used to examine health issues are also listed.



Census 2006 linked to hospitalization data

We are pleased to announce the release of a linked data set that brings together data from  the 2006 long-form Census and the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), thanks to the collaboration between Statistics Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). These linked data provide information on hospitalization patterns of Canadians and allow for analysis of subpopulations. They will also allow researchers to study the associations between the characteristics of individuals and their use of hospital services.  For more information about this new dataset, click here.
