    Description:

    The District of Columbia Healthy Outcomes of Pregnancy Education (DC-HOPE) project is a randomized trial funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to test the effectiveness of an integrated education and counseling intervention (INT) versus usual care (UC) to reduce four risk behaviors among pregnant women. Participants were interviewed at baseline and three additional time points. Multiple imputation (MI) was used to estimate data for missing interviews. MI was done twice: once with all data imputed simultaneously, and once with data for women in the INT and UC groups imputed separately. Analyses of both imputed data sets and the pre-imputation data are compared.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 82-619-M2005002
    Description:

    This document examines the functional limitations-physical, emotional and social-related to the most common types of diabetes and the conditions that result from the disease. These functional limitations are described and classified using the Classification and Measurement System of Functional Health (CLAMES).

    These descriptions and classifications are the first step in a new approach to measuring the health of Canadians that examines what factors are adversely affecting population health and how to address them. This document also provides health professionals, advocacy groups, and individual Canadians with an overview of how living with diabetes affects day-to-day functioning.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X20020016712
    Description:

    In this paper, we consider the effect of the interval censoring of cessation time on intensity parameter estimation with regard to smoking cessation and pregnancy. The three waves of the National Population Health Survey allow the methodology of event history analysis to be applied to smoking initiation, cessation and relapse. One issue of interest is the relationship between smoking cessation and pregnancy. If a longitudinal respondent who is a smoker at the first cycle ceases smoking by the second cycle, we know the cessation time to within an interval of length at most a year, since the respondent is asked for the age at which she stopped smoking, and her date of birth is known. We also know whether she is pregnant at the time of the second cycle, and whether she has given birth since the time of the first cycle. For many such subjects, we know the date of conception to within a relatively small interval. If we knew the time of smoking cessation and pregnancy period exactly for each member who experienced one or other of these events between cycles, we could model their temporal relationship through their joint intensities.

    Description:

    The National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY), developed jointly by Human Resources Development Canada and Statistics Canada, is a comprehensive survey which follows the development of children in Canada and paints a picture of their lives.

  • Public use microdata: 82M0009X
    Description:

    The National Population Health Survey (NPHS) used the Labour Force Survey sampling frame to draw the initial sample of approximately 20,000 households starting in 1994 and for the sample top-up this third cycle. The survey is conducted every two years. The sample collection is distributed over four quarterly periods followed by a follow-up period and the whole process takes a year. In each household, some limited health information is collected from all household members and one person in each household is randomly selected for a more in-depth interview.

    The survey is designed to collect information on the health of the Canadian population and related socio-demographic information. The first cycle of data collection began in 1994, and continues every second year thereafter. The survey is designed to produce both cross-sectional and longitudinal estimates. The questionnaires includes content related to health status, use of health services, determinants of health, a health index, chronic conditions and activity restrictions. The use of health services is probed through visits to health care providers, both traditional and non-traditional, and the use of drugs and other mediciations. Health determinants include smoking, alcohol use and physical activity. A special focus content for this cycle includes family medical history with questions about certain chronic conditions among immediate family members and when they were acquired. As well, a section on self care has also been included this cycle. The socio-demographic information includes age, sex, education, ethnicity, household income and labour force status.

  • Table: 82-570-X
    Geography: Province or territory
    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.
