“This analysis examines disparities in hospitalization rates across socio-economic groups for Canada’s census metropolitan areas. The analysis builds on previous research that has illustrated hospitalization disparites by socio-economic status in Canada—lower socio-economic groups have consistently higher hospitalization rates. Canadian research also suggests that the relationship between socio-economic status and health differs by sex.”
“This analysis addresses the following research questions: Are there disparities in hospitalization rates across socio-economic groups for both males and females? Do the magnitude and cost of these disparities differ by sex?”
