  1. *AAPRs (Age-Adjusted Prevalence Rates) were calculated using NWT 2008 standard population.
  2. **Labrador data only had area code (residence in Aboriginal area or not) instead of Aboriginal Status information.
  3. ***P-value is tested for significant difference between Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal women in each site using Chi-square test.
