    Description:

    Over the past century, life expectancy at birth in Canada has risen substantially. However, these gains in the quantity of life say little about gains in the quality of life. This study calculates health-adjusted life expectancy (HALE), an indicator of quality of life, for the combined household and institutional population every four years from 1994/1995 to 2015. Trends over time in health status, life expectancy, and HALE are examined. The study also discusses how HALE has changed relative to life expectancy.

    Description:

    This is the second version of the Statistical report on the health of Canadians. Like the original in 1996, this report provides a comprehensive and detailed statistical overview of the health status of Canadians and the major determinants of that status. The original report was created for the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Advisory Committee on Population Health, which has also commissioned this update. The broad purpose of the report is to help policy-makers and program planners identify priority issues and measure progress in the domain of population health.

    The Statistical report is meant to be a tool for learning as well as planning. The data identify populations at risk; suggest associations between health determinants, health status, and population characteristics; raise questions about the reasons for the widespread differences among the provinces and territories; and illustrate areas where Canada's health information system is robust, and others where it is relatively weak. These and other themes are touched on in the 11 section introductions of the Statistical Report and developed more fully in the companion publication, Toward a healthy future: second report on the health of Canadians. These publications are available at the Health Canada web site at: http://www.hc-sc.ca.

    Description:

    The 1996 Canadian Census is adjusted for coverage error as estimated primarily through the Reverse Record Check (RRC). In this paper, we will show how there is a wealth of additional information from the 1996 Reverse Record Check of direct value to population estimation. Beyond its ability to estimate coverage error, it is possible to extend the Reverse Record Check classification results to obtain an alternative estimate of demographic growth - potentially decomposed by component. This added feature of the Reverse Record Check provides promise in the evaluation of estimated census coverage error as well as insight as to possible problems in the estimation of selected components in the population estimates program.

    Description:

    As the availability of both health utilization and outcome information becomes increasingly important to health care researchers and policy makers, the ability to link person-specific health data becomes a critical objective. This type of linkage of population-based administrative health databases has been realized in British Columbia. The database was created by constructing an historical file of all persons registered with the health care system, and then by probabilistically linking various program files to this 'coordinating' file. The first phase of development included the linkage of hospital discharge data, physician billing data, continuing care data, data about drug costs for the elderly, births data and deaths data. The second phase of development has seen the addition data sources external to the Ministry of Health including cancer incidence data, workers' compensation data, and income assistance data.

    Description:

    In epidemiology analysis of longitudinal data is commonly accepted as providing the most robust measures of association between putative risk and selected outcomes such as death or cancer. SMARTIE is a SAS application for efficient analysis of longitudinal data. Based on person days at risk, it can handle multiple exits from and re-entries to risk, and derives outcome measures such as survival rates. Standardised Mortality Ratios (SMRs) and Cancer Incidence Ratios (SIRs). Summary data can be produced in a format easily ported to any modelling package such as Stats 5.0. We discuss the background to its development, the overall program structure, its command language, and finally we say something about the organization of outputs. Findings from survival studies using the Longitudinal Study of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) are used to demonstrate features of SMARTIE. This study is based on one per cent of the population of England and Wales. It is continually updated with the addition of new members and with information from birth, death and cancer records, and from the census.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 12-001-X19970023618
    Description:

    Statistical agencies often constitute their business panels by Poisson sampling, or by stratified sampling of fixed size and uniform probabilities in each stratum. This stampling corresponds to algorithms which use permanent numbers following a uniform distribution. Since the characteristics of the units change over time, it is necessary to periodically conduct resamplings while endeavouring to conserve the maximum number of units. The solution by Poisson sampling is the simplest and provides the maximum theoretical coverage, but with the disadvantage of a random sample size. On the other hand, in the case of stratified sampling of fixed size, the changes in strata cause difficulties precisely because of these fixed size constraints. An initial difficulty is that the finer the stratification, the more the coverage is decreased. Indeed, this is likely to occur if births constitute separate strata. We show how this effect can be corrected by rendering the numbers equidistant before resampling. The disadvantage, a fairly minor one, is that in each stratum the sampling is no longer a simple random sampling, which makes the estimation of the variance less rigorous. Another difficulty is reconciling the resampling with an eventual rotation of the units in the sample. We present a type of algorithm which extends after resampling the rotation before resampling. It is based on transformations of the random numbers used for the sampling, so as to return to resampling without rotation. These transformations are particularly simple when they involve equidistant numbers, but can also be carried out with the numbers following a uniform distribution.
