ARCHIVED - Percentage of Adult Females with a Usual Intake of Vitamin C below the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) in Canada

Please Note: The CCHS 2.2 does not include data from the Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory or Nunavut. However, the target population covered by the survey represents approximately 98% of the population of the 10 provinces and is thus considered a national survey.

Percentage of adults age 19 and over with a usual intake of Vitamin C below the EAR (females)

Newfoundland & Labrador 24.0E
Prince Edward Island 32.7
Nova Scotia 21.3E
New Brunswick 27.8
Quebec 11.4E
Ontario 18.7
Manitoba 24.5E
Saskatchewan F
Alberta 20.0E
British Columbia 13.5E
All of Canada 16.7

Note: E - Data with a coefficient of variation (CV) from 16.6% to 33.3%; interpret with caution.
F - Data with a coefficient of variation (CV) greater than 33.3% with a 95% confidence interval not entirely between 0 and 3%; suppressed due to extreme sampling variability.

Download these data as a Microsoft Excel file. The Excel file also contains a confidence interval and coefficient of variation for each estimate. This information contributes to a better understanding of the estimates.
