Comparing the provinces with OECD countries
International comparisons provide provincial and territorial governments with a broader context for benchmarking and peer learning. CIHI’s interactive web tool compares results for Canada’s provinces with those for Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries in 5 categories of care.
As an alternative to the interactive web tool, the data is also available in Excel tables (ZIP).
Additional methodological information is available to help you understand and interpret the results of the OECD indicators included in this tool.
Choosing a Proper Comparison Country
To fully benefit from international comparisons, it’s important to understand the choice of comparison countries. Compare provinces and Canada with Canada’s peer countries on a number of measures, including demographics, health expenditure, health care activities and non-medical determinants of health.
