Community health profiles
Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) creates Community Health Profiles to report on some of the factors that influence the health of individuals and populations in our region.
Community health profiles include:
- Population-level data on several variables such as income, housing, education and child development
- Health indicators such as life expectancy, birth rates, standardized mortality ratios and on how health services are used
We hope that these profiles will help our partners in the community to identify emerging needs, undertake strategic planning and implement supportive health initiatives.
