May 2011 online edition

The May 2011 online issue of Health Reports, released today, contains two articles.

The article, "Associations between household food insecurity and health outcomes in the Aboriginal population (excluding reserves)," explores whether household food insecurity (HFI) was a specific correlate of health in the Aboriginal population. Data from the 2004 Canadian Community Health Survey were used to examine the relationship between HFI and self-reported health, well-being and health behaviours among adult Aboriginal respondents.

The article, "Psychometric properties, factorial structure, and measurement invariance of the English and French versions of the Medical Outcomes Study social support scale," examines the internal consistency of the English and French versions of the Medical Outcomes Study social support scale, a 19-item survey that measures four dimensions of functional support. Data are from the household component of the longitudinal National Population Health Survey.

The May 2011 online issue of Health Reports, Vol. 22, no. 2 (82-003-X, free), is now available from the Key resource module of our website under Publications.
