Canadian Risk Factor Atlas (CRFA)
The Canadian Risk Factor Atlas (CRFA) is an interactive database that shows prevalence maps of key chronic disease and mental health risk factors for various geographic breakdowns: provinces and territories, health regions and census metropolitan areas/large census agglomerations plus the three territorial capitals.
Based on user selections of risk factor, age group (youth, adults), sex and geographic breakdown, an interactive map is created. The CRFA compares the estimates of the selected risk factor for the selected geographic breakdown with the corresponding national average. For each risk factor, estimates are also broken down by socioeconomic status (income, education, employment) and by population centres or rural areas of residence (when applicable).

- Map areas in white represent sparsely populated areas for which data was not available or estimates were suppressed due to small numbers and/or coefficients of variation greater than 35.0%.
- Differences between subnational geographic levels and the national average are determined based on non-overlapping 95% CIs.
Data source: Canadian Community Health Survey,
EEstimates should be interpreted with caution due to high sampling variability (coefficient of variation between 15.0% and 35.0%)
FEstimates were suppressed due to high sampling variability (coefficient of variation above 35.0%)
