  • Articles and reports: 45-20-00022022002
    Description:

    Using the 2015/2016 and 2017/2018 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), 2015-2018 Canadian Vital Death Statistics Database (CVSD) and the updated Remoteness Index Classification, this paper looks at the health and well-being of women and girls by the relative remoteness of their communities.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202000100001
    Description:

    This study uses the 1996 and 2011 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohorts (CanCHECs), with a five-year mortality follow-up, to estimate the life expectancy (LE) of the household population. It also incorporates information from two national health surveys to estimate health-adjusted life expectancy (HALE). The objectives of this study are to examine LE, HALE and disparities in LE and HALE in the 1996 and 2011 cohorts at ages 25 and 65 for men and women, according to highest level of educational attainment and household income quintile; to examine these disparities according to the combination of education and income in the 2011 cohort; and to examine how education- and income-related disparities in LE and HALE changed over time.

    Description:

    With data on healthy life expectancy form the Global Burden of Diseases Study 2010, this article analyses the relationship between length of life and health among men and women in 45 more-developed countries.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201400814044
    Description:

    This study develops a measure of population health that combines years of life lost to death with a continuous measure of quality of life for years lived.

    Description:

    This Internet publication presents comparable health indicators for Canada, the provinces and territories. Indicators have been jointly selected by provincial and territorial health ministries, and Health Canada. Comparable Health Indicators address primary health care, home care, other programs and services, catastrophic drug coverage and pharmaceutical management, diagnostic and medical equipment, health human resources and healthy Canadians.

    Description:

    Taking account of the impacts of institutionalization and death, this study decribes the normative trajectories of health-related quality of life in Canada as individuals age from mid- to late life.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In this study, I examine the factorial validity of selected modules from the Canadian Survey of Experiences with Primary Health Care (CSE-PHC), in order to determine the potential for combining the items within each module into summary indices representing global primary health care concepts. The modules examined were: Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC), Patient Activation (PA), Managing Own Health Care (MOHC), and Confidence in the Health Care System (CHCS). Confirmatory factor analyses were conducted on each module to assess the degree to which multiple observed items reflected the presence of common latent factors. While a four-factor model was initially specified for the PACIC instrument on the basis of priory theory and research, it did not fit the data well; rather, a revised two-factor model was found to be most appropriate. These two factors were labelled: "Whole Person Care" and "Coordination of Care". The remaining modules studied here (i.e., PA, MOHC, and CHCS) were all well-represented by single-factor models. The results suggest that the original factor structure of the PACIC developed within studies using clinical samples does not hold in general populations, although the precise reasons for this are not clear. Further empirical investigation will be required to shed more light on this discrepancy. The two factors identified here for the PACIC, as well as the single factors produced for the PA, MOHC, and CHCS could be used as the basis of summary indices for use in further analyses with the CSE-PHC.

    Description:

    A key indicator of educational progress is the extent to which schools are successful in equipping their students with strong literacy skills. Do educational systems that have the highest average literacy scores also tend to have the smallest gaps in achievement between high-scoring and low-scoring students?

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Analyses based on census data, vital statistics, and data from the Health and Activity Limitation Surveys show that immigrants, especially those from non-European countries, had a longer life expectancy and more years of life free of disability and dependency than did the Canadian-born. But while immigrants were less likely than the Canadian-born to be disabled, they were only slightly less likely to be dependent on others for help with activities of daily living. The reasons for immigrants' longevity and good health are likely related to the "health immigrant effect"
