Health and lifestyle data from more than 33,000 Lower Mainland adults has been compiled into community profiles to help local governments, community groups, and health agencies on planning decisions and policy development at a local level.
These profiles were developed with the provincial Healthy Families BC strategy in mind which is intended to support communities and local governments in prioritizing health actions in areas (e.g. lifestyle behaviours, built environment, key population segments etc) that will reduce chronic disease and injuries.
Update: All data from the indicator charts found on the last page of each Community Profile can be downloaded in Excel format here.

Communities differ considerably with regards to the age, income, education and place of birth of their residents. These social and economic differences are highly influential in determining individual and community health and well-being.
The following charts examine some of the indicators in the profiles across communities.
