  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201100211473
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Using data from the 2009 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Healthy Aging Cognition Module, this study examines correlates of low performance on four cognitive tasks among Canadians aged 65 or older who were living in private dwellings and who did not have Alzheimer's disease or dementia.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X201000111072
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    As our population ages, more and more people are required to provide care or assistance to an elderly parent. In 2007, about one in five caregivers lived more than one hour away from the parent they were assisting. This study provides a profile of caregivers according to whether they lived at varying distances from the parent to whom they were providing care. Information is provided about the socio-economic characteristics of caregivers, the types and frequency of care provided, the use of additional sources of assistance, etc. The primary focus is on the financial, social and work consequences associated with assisting a parent who lives far from a caregiver's place of residence.

    Articles and reports: 82-618-M2005004
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This article identifies the determinants of healthy aging between 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 among middle-aged adults and seniors. A broad range of health and mortality determinants are evaluated: demographic and socio­-economic characteristics (age, sex, living arrangements, education, household income, rural/urban residence), health related behaviours (smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity in leisure time, weight), psycho-social factors (stress, sense of coherence, social support), chronic conditions and frequency of medical consultations.

  • Articles and reports: 89-584-M2004006
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In the face of increasing life expectancy, population aging and feminization of the older population, historic lack of interest in the latter stages of the life course has given way to a more intense focus on later life transitions such as widowhood and shifting living arrangements. In this paper we examine the reallocation of daily activities and change in attitudes of Canadians that occur with the passages associated with living longer.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 11-522-X19990015676
    Description:

    As the population ages, a greater demand for long-term care services and, in particular, nursing homes is expected. Policy analysts continue to search for alternative, less costly forms of care for the elderly and have attempted to develop programs to delay or prevent nursing-home entry. Health care administrators required information for planning the future demand for nursing-home services. This study assesses the relative importance of predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics in predicting and understanding nursing-home entry.

    Articles and reports: 82-003-X19950042816
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    According to the 1994-95 National Population Health Survey, close to 6% of Canadians aged 18 and over had experienced a major depressive episode in the previous 12 months. Univariate analysis shows that the prevalence of depression was higher among women than among men, but tended to decline at older ages for both sexes. The prevalence of depression was also related to a number of socioeconomic characteristics such as marital status, education, and household income, and to several measures of stress, psychological resources and social support. However, multivariate analysis shows that not all of these variables were significantly associated with the odds of experiencing depression. In some instances, factors that increased the risk differed for men and women. For both sexes, chronic strain, recent negative events, lack of closeness, and low self-esteem increased the odds of depression. Traumatic events in childhood or young adulthood and a low sense of mastery were associated with a higher risk of depression for women, but not men. For men, being single and having moderate self-esteem heightened the risk of depression. A substantial proportion of both men and women who had suffered depression reported using drugs. As well, a notable share of people who had been depressed sought professional health care for emotional or mental problems.
