REGION:  ONTARIO
Resource Type:
TOPIC(S): LOW BIRTH WEIGHT
The Ontario First Nations Regional Health Survey (OFNRHS) is a province-wide survey that examines the health status of First Nations people living on reserves in Ontario. It is part of a larger national study, the 1997 First Nations and Inuit Regional Health Survey, which is the first survey to be designed, directed and implemented by First Nations and Inuit groups themselves. The national study had a region-specific portion where each region could adopt the approach best suited to their specific needs. In Ontario’s survey, the focus was on children and youth. The survey also captured the physical, emotional, social, cultural, and spiritual well-being of adults, children, and youth. The goal of the OFNRHS is to provide important province-wide data to inform decisions by First Nations people about how to intervene effectively to improve their health status.

4. Maternal Education and Risk Factors for Small-for-Gestational-Age Births  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): LOW BIRTH WEIGHT
This article examines the association between maternal education, smoking and other risk factors and small-forgestational-age (SGA) births. Maternal education and smoking during pregnancy appear to have independent effects on SGA, after controlling for other risk factors. The effects of maternal education, smoking and other risk factors are likely underestimated, as the analysis pertains only to children who had survived at the time of the interview. The data are from the 1994/95 National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth.
