I did a quick look around and found all sorts of interesting things.
- Did you know about the Fetal Alert Network database? It’s the first mandatory tracking and reporting system in Ontario to monitor the incidence, prevalence and outcomes for infants born with birth defects.
- Take a look at the Substance Use section for sex-and-gender-based analyses of information on Alcohol and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
- Getting overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information available through Statistics Canada? Read Finding Data on Women: A Guide to Major Sources at Statistics Canada which is kindly listed in the lovely Resources section.
