The map of Canada's health literacy


This interactive map provides easy access to the average health-literacy scores and levels for more than 49,000 communities and neighbourhoods in Canada, as well as the country's major cities, health regions and provinces. As well as mapping average health-literacy score, it gives the proportion of the population below health-literacy Level 3 and population estimates for the same literacy levels.
