    Description:

    The purpose of this fact sheet is to provide an overview of the evolution of disability in Canada since the mid-1980's.

  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201800154979
    Description:

    In anticipation of legislation (Bill C-45) legalizing cannabis for non medical use coming into force, Statistics Canada has undertaken a thorough review of its capability to evaluate the bill’s impact. This document focuses on the agency’s social statistics system—specifically, surveys and administrative databases designed to collect information related to health and health care; law enforcement; the justice system and community safety and well-being; education; and labour.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201500214140
    Description:

    This study examines the feasibility and limitations of applying a non-categorical approach (focused on service utilization rather than on specific diagnoses) to administrative data in order to identify children with health problems.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Based on data from the Canadian Cancer Registry, this study examines the impact of using historical rather than current life tables to estimate expected survival in calculations of relative survival ratios. Results are presented by sex, age group, and survival duration.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201100411589
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The objective of this article is to illustrate how combining data from several cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey increases analytical power and yields a clearer picture of immigrant health by identifying more precise subgroups. Examples are presented to demonstrate how indicators of health status vary by birthplace and period of immigration.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X200800010973
    Geography: Province or territory
    Description:

    The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) provides timely estimates of health information at the sub-provincial level. We explore two main issues that prevented us from using physical activity data from CCHS cycle 3.1 (2005) as part of the Profile of Women's Health in Manitoba. CCHS uses the term 'moderate' to describe physical effort that meets Canadian minimum guidelines, whereas 'moderate' conversely describes sub-minimal levels of activity. A Manitoba survey of physical activity interrogates a wider variety of activities to measure respondents' daily energy expenditure. We found the latter survey better suited to our needs and more likely a better measure of women's daily physical activity and health.
