This report compares 20th-century Canadian hospital & nonhospital location-of-death trends & corresponding population mortality trends. 1 of the key findings is a hospitalization-of-death trend, with deaths in hospital peaking in 1994 at 80.5% of all deaths. The lowest rate of hospitalized death & the only cause of death for which fewer than half of all deaths occurred in hospitals was for persons who died of injuries of suicide. Each year, with the exception of 1950 through 1955, deaths by injury or suicide were the least likely to occur in hospitals. (58 refs)
