     NLCHI will be releasing several reports this fall. The Cause of Death 1996-2000 report examines the leading causes of death in Newfoundland and Labrador. The three most prevalent chronic diseases resulting in death are circulatory system, neoplasm and respiratory disease. These three diseases account for 74.4 per cent of all deaths in 2000. A large body of research concludes that lifestyle factors are a major contributor to the development of these diseases.
     Mental Health: Subjective Mental Health Measures focuses on mental health and well-being in survey results from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey. These include mental health status, mental health determinants and use of the mental health system. Specific topics include in major depressive disorder, gambling, alcohol dependence and self-rating of mental health.
     Suicide Attempts and Associated Risk Factors in Newfoundland and Labrador 1998-2000 examines patterns and risk factors for suicide attempts in this province and calculates related hospitalization rates. The study is authored Dr. Reza Alghenbandan, M.D., research associate with NLCHI.
     NLCHI was successful in three recent research proposals: developing a birth weight database for research; developing a cervical cancer database for research; and, studying Aboriginal diabetes in Conne River.
