(a) In 2002–2003, Nunavut did not submit discharge data to CIHI. As such, Canadian figures for 2002–2003 do not include Nunavut and are not comparable with figures from other fiscal years. 2016–2017 data for Nunavut is incomplete and has therefore been suppressed.
(b) Due to privacy and confidentiality concerns, and to minimize the risk of residual disclosure, volumes of fewer than 5 discharges have been suppressed in the cells and removed from total discharge counts.
(c) The “all” sex category includes those categorized as male, female and other. Detailed counts for the “other” category are not shown for privacy reasons, as the figures are less than 5.
(d) Sources: Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), Hospital Morbidity Database (HMDB) and Ontario Mental Health Reporting System (OMHRS), Canadian Institute for Health Information; Fichier des hospitalisations MED-ÉCHO, ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec.
(e) Quebec data from 2006–2007 to 2009–2010 was sourced from MED-ÉCHO. Quebec data from 2010–2011 onward was sourced from the HMDB.
