Youth (15-24) Age-Specific Mortality Rate per 1,000 population, On-Reserve, 2018
Notes: The age-standardized mortality rate is defined as the weighted average of the age-specific mortality rates in the population. As the age distributions of populations influence the number of deaths; age standard mortality adjusts for these differences by “applying the observed age-specific mortality rates to a standard population”. The figures are for individuals registered to a Saskatchewan FN band and residing on-reserve. Registered Indian Status was determined by self-declaration in the Vital Statistics System.
