Data from the physical activity monitor component of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) are now available.

The CHMS collected key information relevant to the health of Canadians by means of direct physical measurements such as height, weight, body composition, physical fitness, blood pressure and physical activity. These indicators were collected from March 2007 to February 2009 from a representative sample of Canadians aged 6 to 79 years in 15 sites across the country. Data are available at the national level only.

Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 5071.
