Toronto gives up on NHS

Interesting article on how the Toronto city government has decided not to use data from the NHS for planning purposes, deeming it too unreliable.

Favourite quote: on being asked if not being able to use census data will pose a problem, the head of the Social Research and Analysis unit responded “Only in the sense that the true indication of a neighbourhood outcome is how things change over time”.

Only?

Thanks to Tracey Lauriault for posting this to the CAPDU list!
