Studies/Études : Examining variations in health within rural Canada

Source: Rural and Remote Health.
"Differences in health between urban and rural areas of Canada are well documented. Canadian rural communities are remarkably heterogeneous in terms of social, economic, and geographic characteristics. There is reason to believe that there is also considerable heterogeneity in health within rural Canada but existing literature has not given this adequate consideration."

"This article describes heterogeneity in health along the urban-rural continuum, both between and within categories of rural areas. Factors that may explain observed variations are then examined."
