Health Statistics: Brandon, Manitoba, & Canada

This guide will help you locate health statistics.

How to Start

Statistics for Brandon might be found within other areas - such as Manitoba. If you can't find statistics for your geographic area (such as Brandon), try searching a larger area within which Brandon is located - such as Prairie Mountain Health, or Manitoba, and so on.

The same is true for Manitoba - if you can't find what you want, try looking for Canadian statistics, or materials from national agencies.

Statistics might be found in Community Health Assessments, Annual Reports, Health Population Reports, and so on. Here are some samples:

Annual Reports may be very useful. For example, the Annual Report for Manitoba/ The Vital Statistics Agency 2016 includes statistics for births, deaths, infant mortality, and deaths by cause (including suicide, specific diseases, and accidents). Older additional reports are also available online for this title. Even older reports for this item are available in print in the BU Library collection.
