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.
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:
The 2019 RHA Indicators Atlas
Autumn 2019 / Includes links to Summary, Report, Summary, Supplementary Content, and News Release.
Prairie Mountain Health / Regional Reports
Includes links to Annual Reports, Expenditures, Strategic Plan, Compensation Disclosure, Accreditation Report, and Community Health Assessments.
Manitoba Health Population Report
The population data are based on records of residents registered with Manitoba Health as outlined in each report. Data for the regions include population of cities, towns, villages, rural municipalities, local government districts, and unorganized territories.
Manitoba Quick Stats
"...a summary picture of population health and health services use in Manitoba. The data is displayed in five categories representing the provincial health system:

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