Figure 9. Incidence Rates of Diagnosed Hypertension among People Aged 20 Years and Older, by Sex, Province and Territory
Age-standardized incidence rates of diagnosed hypertension among people aged 20 years and older, by sex, province and territory are presented in Figure 9 for the year 2006/07. Note that data for Nunavut and QuÃ©bec were unavailable and rates were standardized to the 1991 Canadian population.
The age-standardized incidence rates of diagnosed hypertension were higher in Yukon (37.7 per 1,000) and the Atlantic provinces (26.5 per 1,000 to 35.3 per 1,000) and lower in Ontario (24.7 per 1,000) and the Northwest Territories (24.7 per 1,000).
In 1998/99, Yukon had the lowest age-standardized rate of newly diagnosed hypertension among all provinces and territories (20.0 per 1,000). However, this rate increased significantly to 37.7 per 1,000 in 2006/07, which was greater than the Canadian national rate in 2006/07 (25.8 per 1,000). For additional information, refer to the paragraph on page 13.
