How to use Canada’s prose literacy map
Select the information you would like to see on the map—average prose-literacy scores, proportion at Level 2 or below, etc. To do this, use the drop-down boxes under the heading "Select what you want to see."
Roll your cursor over the main map to see prose literacy data for an area, depending on what you have selected to view.
Click any area in the main map—whether at the community, city, economic region or province level—to display a scorecard of its health-literacy profile. This will pop up to the right of the main map.
A scorecard lists an area's prose literacy data. The scorecard also provides national data for easy comparison.
Zoom in on an area from its scorecard by clicking the "zoom to selection" icon (the magnifying glass) at the top right of the scorecard. You can also click on the city tabs to quickly zoom in on a major city.
To view different regions in Canada and its economic regions, use the tabs with the corresponding names (above the map and to the left).
Print an area's map and scorecard by clicking the printer icon in the top right of the scorecard.
The scorecard can be moved by clicking and dragging it.
The map will scale to the size of the browser window.
Explanatory information is available by clicking on buttons with the cursive letter "i" on them. An information box will pop up with brief explanations and descriptions.
