12-19 Year Olds Who Consulted a Health Professional, by Age & Socioeconomic Status, 2009-10

* Family doctor, generatl practitioner, paediatrician

Data from the Canadian Community Health Survey, 2009-10

Modest variation was found in the proportion of children and youth who consulted a health professional (family doctor, general practitioner, paediatrician) across socioeconomic groups within each age category. Minimal variation was found when comparing to estimates for all Canadian children and youth.

Survey data do not include First Nations children living on reserve. This may result in undercounting of children with inequities in access in some provinces/territories.
