Usage Considerations

The amalgamation of nine geographically based health authorities and three provincial entities into one provincial governance structure resulted in the need to define new geographic areas that met the needs of Alberta Health Services. Each new AHS Zone required a set of rational contiguous sub-zone geographic areas for planning, surveillance, monitoring and reporting activities. Functional areas are essential for ensuring that data and information are representative of the local context.
