Geographic and temporal variations of selected respiratory diseases in Strathcona County and Fort Saskatchewan

Description

This report provides the findings of a descriptive epidemiologic study of asthma, bronchitis and emphysema in Strathcona County. Comparisons of rates of these selected respiratory diseases are made for Ft. Saskatchewan, Edmonton, Ft. McMurray and the province. The study was undertaken at the request of Strathcona County Council, due to a concern that respiratory diseases, especially asthma, may be higher in their community. A committee comprised of the medical officers of health and health inspectors from Lakeland and Edmonton Regional Health Authorities, and the Provincial Health Officers and the Director of the Surveillance Branch, Alberta Health have participated in the review of the findings. This report represents the first in a series of population health assessment and monitoring activities conducted by the Surveillance Branch, Alberta Health, in collaboration with Regional Health Authorities.
