Toronto residents don’t all have equal opportunities to be healthy.
Major differences in health status exist between people because of their social and economic circumstances, and where they live, work, learn and play. Income plays an important role in health inequities.
The Unequal City 2015 report provides current information on differences in health between income groups in Toronto. The report describes the relationship between income and health for 34 health status indicators and measures changes in health inequities over approximately 10 years.
This report is the first to analyze how health inequities have changed over time in Toronto.
