Data Description

The Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System (CCDSS) was developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) in partnership with provincial health ministries – including the New Brunswick Department of Health – as well as non-government organizations, clinicians, and researchers. The CCDSS uses administrative databases to provide a passive surveillance of chronic diseases. The data is processed at the provincial level and submitted to PHAC as aggregate data for national comparisons and further study. The CCDSS COPD DH01c02 database contains individual-level surveillance data for COPD in New Brunswick.
