Data was derived from Statistics Canada’s 2000/01 Canadian Community Health Survey. Age-standardized cross-tabulations were used to compare health status, heath behaviours, and health care utilization between the off-reserve Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal populations. Multiple logistic regression was used to determine if, after adjustment for socio-demographic and health behaviour factors, the Aboriginal population had greater odds of reporting selected health outcomes.
