Public Health Ontario just launched a new Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Map. The SDOH Map is an online interactive tool that shows the distribution of upstream social determinants of health across the province, Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN) and public health units (PHU).
The tool is customizable to allow for specific analysis and comparison. The Map allows to:
- select the indicators that are most relevant for your work
- outline the data specific to your LHIN and/or PHU boundary
- compare two indicators directly on the Map
- download the raw data to do your own analysis
