The Ontario Marginalization Index
How can researchers, community agencies and policy-makers find out more about the relationship between our neighbourhoods and our health?
The Ontario Marginalization index allows you to explore how factors like residential instability and material deprivation are concentrated at local level and how this is affecting health outcomes.
ON-Marg was created by researchers at the Centre for Urban Health Solutions at St. Michael's (C-UHS).
