ARCHIVED - Percentage of Adults with a Usual Intake of Potassium above the Adequate Intake (AI) 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.

Maps of male’s and female’s potassium intake are unavailable due to extreme sampling variability in some provinces.

Percentage of adults age 19 and over with a usual intake of Potassium above the AI (both males and females).

Ontario 5.0E
Manitoba 3.9E
Saskatchewan 7.8E

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.
