In a collaborative effort, the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences and the Ontario Brain Institute have released Brain Disorders in Ontario: Prevalence, Incidence and Costs from Health Administrative Data.

Using population-based health administrative databases for Ontario, the investigators developed profiles for 13 brain disorders. Stroke is covered in Chapter 13.

For each brain disorder population, the report describes sociodemographic characteristics, provides estimates of prevalence and incidence over time, and presents an overview of costs associated with one year of provincial health system use.
