Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System 1996/1997-2011/2012

The Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System (CCDSS) uses linked administrative data sources from every province and territory to estimate the incidence and prevalence of chronic conditions, and, use of health services and health outcomes. Its aim is to foster the collection of surveillance data in a consistent and comparable way across jurisdictions. Patient privacy is protected since only population-level summaries are shared by the provinces and territories. Tracking health conditions through this approach complements other surveillance data sources, such as surveys and registries, and allows for timely reporting to support the planning and evaluation of policies and programs. The Public Health Agency of Canada used provincial and territorial data to create the Pan-Canadian data, available on this website. Provincial and territorial specific data are accessible on the Agency’s [Chronic Disease Infobase](http://infobase.phac-aspc.gc.ca/cubes/ccdss-eng.html) website.

    Thank you for publishing this great data set. As I was investigating this updated data (it says it was last modified 2015.02.19, I accessed it 2016.06.22) and comparing it to the data I downloaded from the same url in 2015 (I think early 2015), I noticed a strange discrepancy in all of the figures. For example, the 2010 population in the male age 45-49 category was 1060470 (cell E425, as of the early 2015 data), and as of 2016.06.22 the male age 45-49 category had a reported 2010 population of 1178260 (cell E389, 10% jump). Could someone please explain this discrepancy? Did the old data have errors, or exclude certain provinces? Thank you.

    Hello, I was wondering whether there is a phone number or email address that I can contact with questions about this data set? For example, the population is not the same across gender for different diseases - take 2008. The listed population for 30-34 F (which, according to the explanation document, is the total number of people with valid health coverage) for diabetes, hypertension, mental illness, mood-anxiety disorder, asthma, IHD and AMI is 1154120 whereas the listed population is different for MS and stroke. I thought that the base population would be the same for all 30-34F diseases in the same year. Anyway, if there is a way I can contact someone about that, it would be great. Thanks. David
