The chart shows that the scores for First Nation communities were: 47 (1981); 51 (1991); 55 (1996); 57 (2001); 57 (2006). The scores for Inuit communities were: 48 (1981); 57 (1991); 60 (1996); 61 (2001); 62 (2006). The scores for other Canadian communities were: 67 (1981); 71 (1991); 72 (1996); 73 (2001); 77 (2006).
