In the Data tables, maps and fact sheets section, updated data tables on unemployment rates and population estimates are available at the health region level. As of June 21, 2013, Health Indicators reflects the latest information from the 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS).
The release of the Health Indicators 2013 report will be the last in the current reporting series. The in-focus section presents the initial objectives of the CIHI-Statistics Canada Health Indicators project, and some of the accomplishments in reporting on the performance of the health system and on the health of Canadians. The report also introduces a new program of work initiated by CIHI to support the efforts of Canadian jurisdictions in stimulating health system performance by providing structured and coordinated pan-Canadian reporting that is tailored to the information needs of different audiences, and development of additional knowledge and capacities for performance improvement. Finally, key findings of an overall analysis of the additional 13 indicators are also provided.
The publication “Health Regions: Boundaries and Correspondence with Census Geography” reflects the boundaries as of May 2013 and provides the geographic linkage to 2001 and 2006 Censuses. Geographic linkage to the 2011 Census will be published in the fall.

The Health Trends will also be updated in Fall 2013 to reflect the latest comparable time-series data from the Canadian Community Health Survey, Canadian Cancer Registry, and Vital Statistics.
