Non-medical Determinants of Health - High School Graduates, 1996

Non-medical Determinants of Health - High School Graduates, 1996 There is a tendency for life expectancy to be higher in those regions where high school attainment has been graduation by most individuals in this age grouping (25 to 29 years). Canada has an excellent record in providing its citizens with an education, and consequently a potential for better health. The highest proportions of Canadians with chronic conditions occur in the low educational attainment category. However, this pattern is not consistent throughout Canada where, in Saskatchewan for example, some provinces the reverse pattern is observed. In such locations, other determinants of health may mitigate the positive contributions associated with higher education. Education is one of the non-medical determinants of health. More people of lower educational attainment rated their own health as poor. 2022-03-14 Natural Resources Canada geoinfo@nrcan.gc.ca Society and Cultureeducationhealthmap Download the English JP2 File through HTTPJP2 https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/696_non_medical_determinants_of_health_high_school_graduates_1996.jp2 Download the English ZIP (PDF,JPG) file through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/696_non_medical_determinants_of_health_high_school_graduates_1996.zip Download the French JP2 File through HTTPother https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/696_determinants_non_medicaux_sante_diplomation_secondaire_1996.jp2 Download the French ZIP (PDF, JPG) File through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/696_determinants_non_medicaux_sante_diplomation_secondaire_1996.zip
