Pohem (Population Health Model)

Pohem is a longitudinal microsimulation model of health and disease. Using equations and sub-models developed at Statistics Canada as well as drawn from the medical literature, the model simulates representative populations and allows the rational comparison of competing health intervention alternatives, in a framework that captures the effects of disease interactions.

For information about the Pohem model and the various studies that have been performed using it, please contact microsimulation@statcan.gc.ca.

Health Template

The Health Template is an interactive exposition of a framework for the collection, organization, and analysis of health information. Some of the concepts in the Health Template have motivated the development and evolution of Statistics Canada's Pohem model.
