      Description:

      Canadian and international research has shown that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to changes in health behaviours, including physical activity. The purpose of this study is to compare physical activity before and during the COVID-19 pandemic by comparing the September through December 2020 data from the 2020 The Canadian Community Health Survey to October through December data from the 2018 CCHS. This study examines this comparison through a health equity lens to illustrate the differential impact across the Canadian population in the domain of physical activity.

      Description:

      While lockdown periods and physical distancing measures are fundamental in reducing virus transmission, prolonged restrictions may lead to reduced engagement in physical activity and exercise. This article examines changes in reported physical activity from before to during the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, it examines changes in the proportion of Canadians meeting physical activity guidelines, as well as changes in the types of physical activity reported. The article explores differences between youth (aged 12 to 17), adults (aged 18 to 64) and older adults (aged 65 and over).

      Description:

      The shift by Canadians to a more physically distanced life resulted in a dramatic reduction in the transmission of COVID-19. However, there are concerns that health behaviours, including physical activity, have consequently changed in ways that will result in an unintended increase in the risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer. This study looks at how many Canadians could develop cardiovascular disease over the next three years because of reduced levels of physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The example that we will discuss is a project that examined the relationship between walkability in neighbourhoods, meaning how well they support physical activity, and actual physical activity for Canadians.

    • 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.

    • Table: 82-567-X
      Description:

      The National Population Health Survey (NPHS) is designed to enhance the understanding of the processes affecting health. The survey collects cross-sectional as well as longitudinal data. In 1994/95 the survey interviewed a panel of 17,276 individuals, then returned to interview them a second time in 1996/97. The response rate for these individuals was 96% in 1996/97. Data collection from the panel will continue for up to two decades. For cross-sectional purposes, data were collected for a total of 81,000 household residents in all provinces (except people on Indian reserves or on Canadian Forces bases) in 1996/97.

      This overview illustrates the variety of information available by presenting data on perceived health, chronic conditions, injuries, repetitive strains, depression, smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, consultations with medical professionals, use of medications and use of alternative medicine.
