  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300500001
    Description: Research has identified an association between sleep and obesity in the general population, it is also important to examine this association in the military population. This study presents the prevalence of overweight, obesity, sleep duration and measures of sleep quality in the Canadian Armed Forces. In addition, the independent associations of sleep duration and sleep quality with obesity are examined.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300300002
    Description: Previous studies examining the cardiometabolic risks associated with physical activity (PA) in workers have predominantly used self-reported measures. Little is known about workers’ distinct daily PA patterns and whether these are linked with cardiometabolic risks. This study examined associations between patterns of workers’ accelerometer-measured daily PA and four markers of cardiometabolic health. Furthermore, the study examined similarities and differences between younger compared to middle-aged and older workers, and between men and women, to understand whether these groups are associated with different cardiometabolic risks.

    Description:

    Using data spanning a decade (2007 to 2017) from cycles 1, 2 and 5 of the Canadian Health Measures Survey, this study provides a comprehensive update of current fitness levels and a description of recent trends in the fitness levels of Canadian children and youth aged 6 to 19 years.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900900002
    Description:

    The purpose of this study is to examine the association between walkability and obesity and self-rated general and mental health in a nationally-representative sample of Canadians in children and adults. A secondary purpose is to examine and describe the mediating effect of physical activity in the association between walkability and obesity. Data are from the 2016 Canadian Active Living Environments database and the Canadian Health Measures Survey (2009-2015).

  • Stats in brief: 11-627-M2019066
    Description:

    This infographic presents findings on the association between walkable neighbourhoods and physical activity by age and type of physical activity, as well as the association between walkability and obesity.

    Description:

    This is a Health fact sheet about Canadians aged 18 and older who are overweight or obese, based on self-reported height and weight that has been adjusted with correction factors. The results shown are based on data from the Canadian Community Health Survey.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X201900100001
    Description:

    Demographers are facing increasing pressure to disaggregate their estimates and forecasts by characteristics such as region, ethnicity, and income. Traditional demographic methods were designed for large samples, and perform poorly with disaggregated data. Methods based on formal Bayesian statistical models offer better performance. We illustrate with examples from a long-term project to develop Bayesian approaches to demographic estimation and forecasting. In our first example, we estimate mortality rates disaggregated by age and sex for a small population. In our second example, we simultaneously estimate and forecast obesity prevalence disaggregated by age. We conclude by addressing two traditional objections to the use of Bayesian methods in statistical agencies.
