Abstract

Rates were calculated per 100,000 population for age, sex, year, leading cause of injury and Health Service Delivery Area. Age-specific rates are used throughout the report. Additional analyses were conducted by comparing the age standardized rates over time. To show differences in age structures across regions, rates were standardized using Canada ‘91 population as the standard population. The age-specific rates were calculated by dividing the number of cases in each age group by the population of that specific age group. Age-standardized rates were calculated using a reference population of known age distribution called a standard population to adjust for variations in population age structures among the different Health Authority geographic areas. Regression analysis was used to test the significance for the trends. A p value
