Community Demographics 

The Lalonde Report of 1974 established a framework for factors that determined health status: lifestyle, environment, human biology and health services. Since 1974 other studies have been conducted that support evidence of key community factors that contribute to population health. These factors are: income and social status; social support networks; education; employment/ working conditions; social environments; physical environments; personal health practices and coping skills; healthy child development; biology and genetic endowment; health services; gender; and culture.
