ARCHIVED - Percentage of Adult Males with a Usual Intake of Zinc 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.

A map of female's zinc intake is unavailable due to extreme sampling variability in some provinces.

Percentage of adults age 19 and over with a usual intake of zinc below the EAR (males)

Newfoundland & Labrador F
Prince Edward Island 22.7E
Nova Scotia 14.8E
New Brunswick F
Quebec 13.6E
Ontario 14.5E
Manitoba 17.6E
Saskatchewan 18.1E
Alberta 16.2E
British Columbia 14.3E
All of Canada 16.8

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.
