The data comes from reports sent to medical officers of health in Toronto, Peel, Halton, York and Durham sent to the Ministry of Health in 2008. The Ministry released a spreadsheet in response to an FOI request with the reported disease, the region that the report came from, and the first three characters of the postal code of the patient, which was available in most cases.
The maps show reports of cases in 2008, per 1,000 of population.
Note: These maps show the cases which are officially reported. The statistics in this morning's story are an attempt to estimate the number of cases which actually occur, based on the reported cases.
