This is the website for The Manitoba Child Health Atlas 2004, published solely on the World Wide Web. The Atlas comes out of a 3-year project funded by the Canadian Population Health Initiative focusing on factors that contribute to inequalities in child health and well-being. The Atlas provides descriptive, population-based analyses of the health and educational outcomes of Manitoba children, at the level of health regions and sub-regions.

Graphs and maps of variations in child health and educational achievement at various stages of development and by family circumstances and community characteristics are provided on this website. Excel files with the data used to develop these graphs and maps are also provided so users can develop their own output.

A printed report based on the key findings related to educational outcomes from the Atlas has been released and is available for downloading (see above right). The Atlas website contains the comprehensive list of educational outcomes, as well as analyses related to other indicators.

This research has been funded by the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI), a program of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). The views expressed herein do not necessarily represent the views of the Canadian Institute for Health Information.
