The report is an analysis of data collected between May 6 and June 3, 2019 using online and paper surveys, in-person interviews and focus groups.

A significant portion of the report is dedicated to the Social Determinants of Health - housing, food, financial, social connections and self-determination. The other two sections of the report focus on access to health services and community health needs.

Over 560 islanders, aged 15 yrs and over, responded to the survey, which is an excellent response rate.

The Report and Synopsis are also available in hard copy at the Salt Spring Island Public Library.
