Chronic Disease Infobase

Welcome to the Chronic Disease Infobase website toolkit, a series of Internet based tools to help visualize, analyze, interpret and disseminate health indicator data for chronic disease, injury and child/maternal health. Our hope is that through these tools, health related data will be converted into information and knowledge that will be used to improve the health of Canadians.

Chronic Disease and Injury Indicator Framework

The Chronic Disease and Injury Indicator Framework (CDIIF) is a comprehensive pan-Canadian resource on the burden of chronic diseases, injuries and associated determinants. The Framework includes a core set of indicators and specific measures which are grouped into six core domains: Social and environmental determinants, early life/childhood risk and protective factors, behavioural risk and protective factors, risk conditions, disease prevention practices, and health outcomes/status. Through the associated Data Tool, the CDIIF provides pan-Canadian estimates, time trends and data breakdowns by demographic and socioeconomic variables for each of the measures within the Framework.

Positive Mental Health Surveillance Indicator Framework

The Positive Mental Health Surveillance Indicator Framework (PMHSIF) is a pan-Canadian resource on positive mental health outcomes and associated risk and protective factors. Positive mental health is a state of well-being that allows us to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and deal with the challenges we face.

The PMHSIF includes a core set of indicators grouped by positive mental health outcomes and four key domains: individual, family, community and society level determinants. Through the associated Data Tool, the PMHSIF provides pan-Canadian estimates and data breakdown for adults aged 18 and older by key demographic and socioeconomic variables for each of the measures within the Framework. Frameworks for youth and child populations are under development.

Data Cubes

Data Cubes are interactive databases that quickly allow users to create tables and graphs using their web browser. These online analytical processing cubes, or OLAP cubes, produce output displayed in a table format usually with a corresponding graph. They make available hundreds of summary cross tabulations and graphics at your fingertips.
