AbstractThere 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.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
