Chapter 15 – Inequality, Family and Child Health
In 2003, the share of total after-tax income of the richest 20% of the family units
was 43.7% while for the poorest 20% it was 5%
The number of poor people was nearly 5 million in 2003 and the poverty rate was
nearly 16%--1.2 million children lived in poverty, a rate of 16.7%
Certain groups face a higher risk of poverty including: unemployed persons,
people who participation in the labor force is irregular, those with low educational
levels, and those in certain occupations
Those who are advantaged with respect to socioeconomic status are also
advantaged in health status
In 1960 the infant mortality rate was slightly over 27, in 2003 the rate was 5.3
Infant mortality rate in Aboriginal population is almost twice that of the general
population
Infant mortality rate vary by income groups
The standard definition of low birth weight is less than 5.5 pounds at birth
The average birth weight of a full-term infant is 7.5 pounds
Low birth weight is the major cause of infant mortality
Almost 6% of all live births in Canada result in low birth weight
Low birth weight babies are likely to be born to very young (10-14) or very old
(45+) mothers – these people are twice as likely
Premature babies account for over half of low birth weight babies
Injuries are the leading cause of death for Canadian children and youth between 1
and 19 years of age – home and school are the primary locations
The 3 leading causes of injury-related deaths were motor vehicle collision,
drowning and threat to breathing
Chapter 17 – Well Being at Mid Life: Determinants of Preventative Health
Health determinants include: gender, culture, income and social status, healthy
child development, biology and genetic endowment, physical environment,
employment and work conditions, personal health practices and coping skills,
education, health services, social support networks, and social environments
Mid life is a time at which the range of determinants of health whose effects may
cumulate over time may affect one’s well being
A broad population health perspective requires us to examine the conditions of
life and work that damage the health of our communities
A population health approach focuses on the entire population and recognizes the
importance of investigating the health disparities in populations
Lifecourse is a sociological term that is used to describe life stages in social and
cultural contexts
A lifecoure approach acknowledges the fluidity of the interaction between people
and their environment, and the social and cultural contexts of biological change
