Thank you for publishing this great data set. As I was investigating this updated data (it says it was last modified 2015.02.19, I accessed it 2016.06.22) and comparing it to the data I downloaded from the same url in 2015 (I think early 2015), I noticed a strange discrepancy in all of the figures.

For example, the 2010 population in the male age 45-49 category was 1060470 (cell E425, as of the early 2015 data), and as of 2016.06.22 the male age 45-49 category had a reported 2010 population of 1178260 (cell E389, 10% jump).

Could someone please explain this discrepancy? Did the old data have errors, or exclude certain provinces?

Thank you.

I was wondering whether there is a phone number or email address that I can contact with questions about this data set? For example, the population is not the same across gender for different diseases - take 2008. The listed population for 30-34 F (which, according to the explanation document, is the total number of people with valid health coverage) for diabetes, hypertension, mental illness, mood-anxiety disorder, asthma, IHD and AMI is 1154120 whereas the listed population is different for MS and stroke. I thought that the base population would be the same for all 30-34F diseases in the same year. Anyway, if there is a way I can contact someone about that, it would be great. Thanks.

Hi David,
I received a reply from the data owner. This is their response:
"The population size is different for MS and Stroke because QC was not included in MS and NB not included in Stroke."

They also sent along a document that may be of use to you, that I cannot upload here in the comments box due to its size. Should you wish to have a copy of it, please send an email to

Thank you, and apologies for the delay,
Tasha, the Open Government Team

Would it be possible to expand the list of chronic diseases to include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as well as Canada has one of the highest incidence and prevalence rates of IBD in the world? Thank you kindly. I look forward to your response.

Are mortality rates for each chronic disease available? The current CSV files all have "N/A" under the mortality columns.
