Community profile: Cypress County excluding Medicine Hat health data and summary

Description

To assist with primary health care planning, Alberta Health has developed a series of reports to provide a broad range of demographic, socio-economic and population health statistics considered relevant to primary health care for communities across the province. These community profiles provide information at the Zone and Local Geographic Area (LGA) level for each of the 132 LGAs in Alberta. Each Profile offers an overview of the current health status of residents in the LGA, indicators of the area's current and future health needs, and evidence as to which quality services are needed on a timely basis to address the area's needs. The profiles are intended to highlight areas of need and provide relevant information to support the consistent and sustainable planning of primary health services.

To assist with primary health care planning, Alberta Health has developed a series of reports to provide a broad range of demographic, socio-economic and population health statistics considered relevant to primary health care for communities across the province. Each Profile offers an overview of the current health status of residents in the designated Local Geographic Area (LGA), indicators of the area’s current and future health needs, and evidence as to which quality services are needed on a timely basis to address the area’s needs. The LGA section of the profile includes a compendium of health related information on demographics, prevalence rates, emergency visits, maternal and child health and more. Furthermore, each profile contains information on access statistics, offering some additional insight into existing needs that are not being met, as well as the utilization of non-local facilities by LGA residents. Various data sources are used to compile the Community Profiles. The Profiles are developed through the collaboration of the Primary Health Care Branch, Health Analytics Branch, Surveillance and Assessment Branch in Alberta Health, along with Statistics Canada and Alberta Health Services.
