How to Read this Report

This online report represents the first time that the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) has published a report solely to the World Wide Web, allowing enhanced report navigation and sharing of information. Because this is a new way to present a report, we've provided some information here to guide the reader.

At the left side of every page you will find links to help you navigate within the Manitoba Child Health Atlas. At the right side of every page you will find links to the Education Key Findings printed report. At the top of every page are buttons linking to several other locations on MCHP's website.

Manitoba Child Health Atlas

Each of the Indicators pages provides a short description of the indicators, as well as links to graphs available in both Microsoft Excel and PDF format. Maps are available for selected indicators.

The advantage of viewing the Excel files is that the report data used to make the graphs are provided, and for some indicators, the data sheet contains information not provided in the graphs. Through publishing this report to the Web, we can provide much more information than could be made easily available in a printed document. Policy makers and others interested in regional analyses can access data relevant to their own regions in Manitoba.

The advantage of the PDF files is that they provide an alternative, printer-friendly, means to view the graphs for readers who may not have Microsoft Excel. PDF files can be viewed through Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded for free from Adobe. The data are not provided within the PDF files.

For more information on the graphs, please see the Data Display section within Methods.

The Background section provides information from similar research, details about how the indicators were measured, and links to related information.
