Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2014-05-21


This is the age- and sex-adjusted mortality rate (given as a percentage, i.e., deaths per 100) for residents aged 19 and older with cumulative mental illness disorders.

A cohort diagnosed or treated for one or more of depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, personality disorder, or schizophrenia was identified (see links in the Related Terms section below for more infomation on each condition) using five fiscal years of data: 1997/98-2001/02. Then the all-cause mortality rate was calculated in the subsequent five year period: 2002/03-2006/07. The cumulative mental illness cohort includes Manitoba residents aged 19 and older as of April 1, 2002 who had at least five years of coverage prior to April 1, 2002 and who were registered with Manitoba Health until March 31, 2007 or death.
