Supplementary notes

Numbers show shortages listed on the Drug Shortages Canada website. Actual/anticipated shortages are the number of shortage reports with an “actual”/”anticipated” status on the first day of the month. These are determined using the report creation date, shortage start date, and shortage avoided/end date listed in the reports.
* The March 2020 values correspond to the shortages on March 31, 2020, which was the last day of the study period.
