Articles and reports: 11-522-X200600110426


This paper describes the sample design used to satisfy the objectives and logistics of the Canadian Health Measures Survey. Among the challenges in developing the design were the need to select respondents close to clinics, the difficulty of achieving the desired sample size for young people, and subsampling for measures associated with exposure to environmental contaminants. The sample design contains solutions to those challenges: the establishment of collection sites, the use of more than one sample frame, and a respondent selection strategy.
