Life expectancy is the average number of years an individual of a given age is expected to live if current mortality trends in the region continue. It is a hypothetical measure and an indicator of current health and mortality conditions for a population; it is not a rate. Life expectancy for BC and sub-provincial areas is prepared by BC Stats, Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizen’s Services. The data and additional information is available at http://www.bcstats.gov.bc.ca/StatisticsBySubject/Demography/VitalStatistics.aspx  Ministry of Health. (2014). Chronic Disease Registry.
Health condition indicators were obtained from the Chronic Disease Registry of the Primary Health Care Registries of the BC Ministry of Health Services, which uses information from a number of administrative databases for health services from the Ministry including Medical Services Plan (MSP), Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), PharmaNet, and vital statistics. The healthcare utilization data provide information about specific diagnoses and treatments. As a result, disease statuses identified from these administrative databases are more reliable and accurate. More information is available at http://www.primaryhealthcarebc.ca/.
 BC Cancer Registry. (2013). New cancer diagnoses for 2011.
The BC Cancer Registry has existed since 1969, and has been maintained at the BC Cancer Agency since 1980. It contains personal and demographic information as well as diagnosis and death information on all cases of cancer for B.C. residents.
The BC Cancer Registry collects data and generates cancer statistics on the B.C. population for the purposes of cancer prevention and treatment in the province. Specifically, it provides data for cancer control. That is, it provides ongoing information on the scope of the cancer problem, information to plan programs to reduce mortality and morbidity, monitors the effectiveness of such programs, and provides the information used to project future trends of cancer to aid in strategic planning. The BC Cancer Registry also serves as a source of information for research. More information is available at http://www.bccancer.bc.ca/HPI/CancerStatistics/default.htm
