ARCHIVED - Percentage of Adults with a Usual Intake of Folate below the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) in Canada

Quick Links
A map of Canada showing, by province, the percentage of adults age 19 and over with a usual intake of Folate below the Estimated Average Requirement.

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 male’s folate intake is unavailable due to extreme sampling variability in some provinces.
