  • Public use microdata: 13-25-0001
    Description: The Public Use Microdata File (PUMF) for the Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey (CTNS) provides information to fill important data gaps related to vaping, cannabis, and tobacco usage. The data will inform policy and provide a current snapshot of use across Canada.

    Until 2017, Statistics Canada conducted the Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CTADS), which collected data on tobacco as well as alcohol and drug use in Canada. In 2019, the Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CADS) was conducted to collect data on alcohol and drug use independently from the Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey (CTNS) which was conducted to primarily collect data on tobacco and nicotine.

    This product includes many safeguards to prevent the identification of any one person or household. The CTNS PUMF is for users who prefer to do their own analysis by focusing on specific sub-groups in the population or by cross-classifying variables.

    Description: The Health of Canadians report brings together important health data, both for the population overall and for specific groups, to provide a comprehensive portrait of population health and to shed light on health disparities. It includes key statistics on population health such as health outcomes (e.g., chronic conditions), health behaviours (e.g., exercise, nutrition), access to health care (e.g., unmet health care needs) and determinants of health (e.g., age, income).

    The Health of Canadians report is meant to be used by our federal, provincial and territorial partners, as well as health professionals, researchers, and policymakers across the country to inform policies and plans, leading to better, more equitable health outcomes for all Canadians.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300600001
    Description: The 2018 Cannabis Act legalizing the production, sale, and use of cannabis for non-medical purposes renewed interest in the importance of ongoing and more detailed monitoring of cannabis consumption and consequences. Some cannabis users will experience impaired control over their use of cannabis, putting them at risk for cannabis use disorder (sometimes called addiction) and other harms. Using the Severity of Dependence Scale in the annual Canadian Community Health Survey, this study examines cannabis consumers with and without impaired control.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300400002
    Description: Polysubstance use—the use of multiple substances on the same or different occasions—is a risk factor for substance use disorder. However, national surveillance of substance use in Canada has often focused on use of a single substance. To better understand and address polysubstance use, this study characterized the use of vaping products, cigarettes, inhaled cannabis, and alcohol among Canadians aged 15 years and older. Nationally representative data from the 2020 Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey were analyzed.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300300001
    Description: As Canada continues to experience an opioid crisis, it is important to understand the intersection between the demographic, socioeconomic and service use characteristics of those experiencing opioid overdoses to better inform prevention and treatment programs. This study aims to identify distinct groups of individuals with unique sets of characteristics and experiences among those who had an opioid overdose in British Columbia between 2014 and 2016.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202200700001
    Description:

    There has been increasing scrutiny of opioid prescribing following injury given concerns that prescribed opioids may contribute to addiction and/or overdose. This study aimed to better understand the relationship between injury, opioids prescribed pre- and post-injury, and non-medical drug poisoning. Focusing on working age (15-65 years old) residents of the Fraser Health region, this study used a linked administrative dataset to better understand the relationships between injury, whether the injury was work-related or sustained outside of the workplace, pain management medication in the form of opioid and opioid agonist therapy prescriptions before and after injury, and potential non-medical drug poisoning.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202101200002
    Description:

    Reliance on the use of opioids to manage pain has increased over time, as have opioid-related morbidity and deaths. In 2019, Statistics Canada reported descriptive associations between demographic and geographic descriptors, certain mental health disorders, and problematic opioid pain relief medications (OPRM) use among Canada’s OPRM-using population aged 15 years or older. The goal of this analysis is to extend that previous research by using modelling to examine the associations for a broader range of characteristics. It strives to clarify which socioeconomic, health behaviour and psychosocial factors are independently and significantly associated with a greater likelihood of problematic OPRM use after accounting for other descriptors.

    Description:

    Canada continues to experience an opioid crisis. While there is solid information on the demographic and geographic characteristics of people experiencing fatal and non-fatal opioid overdoses in Canada, there is limited information on the social and economic conditions of those who experience these events. To fill this information gap, Statistics Canada collaborated with existing partnerships in British Columbia, including the BC Coroners Service, BC Stats, the BC Centre for Disease Control and the British Columbia Ministry of Health, to create the Statistics Canada British Columbia Opioid Overdose Analytical File (BC-OOAF).

    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.

    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.
