External Causes as Leading Cause of Death, On-Reserve 2008 – 2014
Notes: The figures are for individuals registered to a Saskatchewan FN band and residing on-reserve. The figures do not include non-registered First Nations or non-First Nations that may be living on-reserve. Status Verification System (SVS) identifies on-reserve Saskatchewan FN from the Government of Saskatchewan Vital Statistics System (VSS).
Limitations: Limited data available for causes of death prior to 2003.
Source: Government of Saskatchewan Vital Statistics System (VSS), ICD-10 Codes. Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s Indian Registration System is used as the denominator for crude death rates and age-specific mortality rates.
