Articles and reports: 82-003-X200800210564


This article compares associations between body mass index categories based on self-reported versus measured data with selected health conditions. The goal is to determine if the misclassification resulting from the use of self-reported data alters associations between excess weight and these health conditions. The analysis is based on 2,667 respondents aged 40 or older from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey.
