You can use filters in the Measuring Trends in Health Inequalities in Cities data tables to quickly find the information you want. Let’s imagine you want to compare rates of early childhood dental caries between Calgary and Edmonton. You can click the CMA Name filter to display only these regions. Then select your preferred Indicator, Rate Presentation, and Fiscal Years. Looking at the Age-Standardized Rate, you can now easily see that the day surgery rate for childhood dental caries is higher in Calgary than in Edmonton. You can also break down day surgery rates by income quintiles by changing the rate presentation. The results are now presented from lowest to highest income quintile for each city. So when you’re exploring the data tables, try using filters to hone in on the information you want.
