  • Articles and reports: 85-002-X20010018387
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This report provides the most recent information from the 1999-2000 Transition Home Survey. It is a census survey of facilities providing residential services for abused women conducted every 2 years. Questionnaires are mailed to every known facility identified as providing residential services (shelter) to abused women in each province and territory. Information is collected on the characteristics of the facilities and the services provided during the previous 12 months. The survey also provides a one-day snapshot of the characteristics of women and children residing in shelters on a specific day. For the 1999-2000 survey, the snapshot day was April 17, 2000. In 1999-2000, 92% of shelters responded to the survey. Where possible, comparisons are made with the 1997-1998 Transition Home Survey.

    Articles and reports: 85-224-X20000005259
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

  • Public use microdata: 89M0007X
    Description:

    Information in this microdata file refers to survey data collected in September - November, 1994 for persons 15 years of age and older in Canada's ten provinces. The survey's main data objectives were to measure the prevalence and patterns of alcohol and other drug use, to assess harm and other consequences of drug use and to evaluate trends in recent patterns of use. Canada's Alcohol and Other Drugs Survey (CADS) also updates and expands upon data collected in the first survey, the National Alcohol and Other Drugs Survey (NADS), conducted in 1989.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X19990014715
    Description:

    The Gallup Organization has been conducting household surveys to study state-wide prevalences of alcohol and drug (e.g., cocaine, marijuana, etc.) use. Traditional design-based survey estimates of use and dependence for counties and select demographic groups have unacceptably large standard errors because sample sizes in sub-state groups are two small. Synthetic estimation incorporates demographic information and social indicators in estimates of prevalence through an implicit regression model. Synthetic estimates tend to have smaller variances than design-based estimates, but can be very homogeneous across counties when auxiliary variables are homogeneous. Composite estimates for small areas are weighted averages of design-based survey estimates and synthetic estimates. A second problem generally not encountered at the state level but present for sub-state areas and groups concerns estimating standard errors of estimated prevalences that are close to zero. This difficulty affects not only telephone household survey estimates, but also composite estimates. A hierarchical model is proposed to address this problem. Empirical Bayes composite estimators, which incorporate survey weights, of prevalences and jackknife estimators of their mean squared errors are presented and illustrated.

  • 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.

    Description:

    This issue of Juristat focuses principally on criminal drug offences reported by Canadian police services. It sketches a statistical profile of drug crimes and drug offenders, while examining the various types of offences and drugs involved. The report also examines national trends as well as provincial/territorial comparisons.

    Description:

    Homicide – the killing of one human being by another - tends to receive more media attention than any other criminal act. Governments, criminal justice agencies and the general public have a vested interest in monitoring the nature and extent of these occurrences. Despite a growing concern among Canadians about violence, the homicide rate has gradually been declining since the mid 1970s.
