THE HEALTH OF THE SASKATCHEWAN POPULATION
From a large collection of statistics about general health and health behaviours in Canada a pattern emerges about the health of Saskatchewan people twelve years of age and older.

There are still too many Saskatchewan adults who smoke (17%), are overweight (61%), or lead an inactive lifestyle (46%). Nevertheless 59% report that their health is very good or excellent and 93% are satisfied with life in general. Three summary observations are made.
  • The health of Saskatchewan people is not dramatically different from the health of other Canadians.
  • Health behaviours and the incidence of health conditions are largely unchanged over the past ten years.
  • The recent growth in economic well-being has not yet had an effect on the general health of the population.
