Vital Statistics Agency Reports
NOTE: In 2019, the Ministry of Health established Community Health Service Areas (CHSAs). CHSA’s are a new geographical grouping made up of community-level areas. Multiple CHSA’s are included within a Local Health Area (LHA). In June 2020, Vital Statistics updated all death reports on this page to show deaths by CHSAs.
For more information, see Health Boundaries.
