Income Deciding Factor For Canadians Seeking Medical Attention

Canadians belonging to the higher wages bracket are more likely to seek medical attention. This was reported by Statistics// Canada.

This study had made use of the information published in the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey which points to the fact that the higher income group consults specialist doctors on a regular basis. The other factors that are discussed in this study concerning the visit to a doctor are sex, income, age, race and proximity of residence to the doctor.

This survey also suggests that around 15.8 million had been to their family doctor at least once a year. These people are in the age group of 18 to 64. Around 25% of them had consulted a general practitioner and also a specialist four to five times a year. Senior citizens visited doctors more frequently than their younger counterparts. On the other hand a sizeable population claims that they do not have a family doctor.

When gender is taken into consideration, more women consult doctors than men. Specialist doctors are visited more by city dwellers than the rural folks. Native Canadians seek less of doctor’s advice than their white counterparts. The visit by a black senior citizen to a doctor is likely to be three times more than the whites. However the same do not seem to be true for the entire population.
