Abstract

The primary goal of this paper is to improve our understanding of the link between the health of Canadian children and a variety of socioeconomic factors. Both researchers and policy makers have a long standing interest in this topic. There is broad agreement that environmental factors have an impact on health outcomes. Until recently, however, there has been little or no Canadian data with which to assess the nature and magnitude of the role which socioeconomic factors play in the incidence and severity of such problems.
