From: What is the comparative health status and associated risk factors for the Métis? A population-based study in Manitoba, Canada

Indicator Provincial difference between Métis and all others
(age- and sex-adjusted)
Percentage difference between Métis and all others
Population health status & mortality   
Premature Mortality Rate (age 0-74) 4.0 vs. 3.3 per 1000; RR = 1.23 (1.16, 1.30); p < 0.001 23% higher
Total Mortality Rate (all ages) 9.7 vs. 8.4 per 1000; RR = 1.15 (1.07, 1.25); p < 0.001 15% higher

All-Cause 5-year Mortality Rates for Individuals with Diabetes 20.8% vs. 18.6%; RR = 1.12 (1.02, 1.22); p < 0.02 12% higher
Prevalence of physical illnesses   
Hypertension (age 19+) 27.9% vs. 24.8%; RR = 1.13 (1.09, 1.16); p < 0.001 13% higher
Arthritis (age 19+) 24.2% vs. 19.9%; RR = 1.22 (1.17, 1.27); p < 0.001 22% higher
Total Respiratory Morbidity (all ages) 13.6% vs. 10.6%; RR = 1.29 (1.19, 1.39); p < 0.001 29% higher
Diabetes (age 19+) 11.8% vs. 8.8%; RR = 1.34 (1.17, 1.51); p < 0.001 34% higher
Rate of Lower Limb Amputations in People with Diabetes (age 19+) 24.1 vs. 16.2 per 1000; RR = 1.49 (1.23, 1.81); p < 0.001 49% higher
Ischemic Heart Disease (age 19+) 12.2% vs. 8.7%; RR = 1.41 (1.31, 1.51); p < 0.001 41% higher
Osteoporosis (age 50+) 12.2% vs. 12.3%; RR = 0.99 (0.89, 1.10); p = 0.826, NS NS
Dialysis Initiation (age 19+) 0.46% vs. 0.34%; RR = 1.35 (1.17, 1.57); p < 0.001 35% higher
Rate of Acute Myocardial Infarction (age 40+) 5.4 vs. 4.3 per 1000; RR = 1.26 (1.15, 1.39); p < 0.001 26% higher
Rate of Stroke Incidence (age 40+) 3.6 vs. 2.9 per 1000; RR = 1.26 (1.12, 1.41); p < 0.001 26% higher
  1. RR = Relative Rate; 95% CI = 95% Confidence Intervals; NS = not statistically significant
  2. *life expectancy and PYLL were not calculated using regression, hence do not have 95% CIs
