    Description: On average, 45% of Canadian adults meet the recommended 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Using six combined cycles of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (2007 to 2019), this study examines how the percentage of Canadian males and females aged 18 to 79 years meeting the physical activity recommendation differs across socio-demographic, family arrangement and health factors. The purpose of this paper is to determine how sex, age and family arrangement intersect with known risk factors for physical inactivity to identify groups within the Canadian population most at risk of not meeting the physical activity recommendation.

    Description: Previous studies examining the cardiometabolic risks associated with physical activity (PA) in workers have predominantly used self-reported measures. Little is known about workers’ distinct daily PA patterns and whether these are linked with cardiometabolic risks. This study examined associations between patterns of workers’ accelerometer-measured daily PA and four markers of cardiometabolic health. Furthermore, the study examined similarities and differences between younger compared to middle-aged and older workers, and between men and women, to understand whether these groups are associated with different cardiometabolic risks.

    Description:

    Cycling is the fastest growing mode of transportation in many Canadian communities and has experienced major boosts during the COVID pandemic. While there have been recent efforts to develop national measures of active living environments for walking and for transit in Canada, there are no corresponding measures for cycling environments. The goal of this study is to develop the first national dataset in Canada for Dissemination area -level metrics of the cycling environment: the Canadian Bikeway Comfort and Safety metrics. This will help develop area-level metrics of the cycling environment for all of Canada.

    Description:

    Canadian adults spend a large proportion of their day engaged in sedentary behaviour, which in excess, is a risk factor for hypertension, obesity, depression, chronic conditions and premature mortality. Using data from the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) and the new Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults aged 18-64 years and 65 years and older, the purpose of this study is to compare the percentages of Canadians meeting three different sedentary thresholds (less than and equal to 3 hours per day of screen time, less than and equal to 7 per day of self-reported sitting time and less than and equal to 9 hours per day of accelerometer-measured sedentary time).

    Description:

    The physical activity (PA) recommendation was recently revised in the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults. The 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity PA (MVPA) went from requiring that MVPA be accrued in bouts of 10 minutes or more (bouted) to having no bout requirement (non-bouted). Using adult accelerometer data from three combined cycles of the nationally representative Canadian Health Measures Survey, this study compared adherence to the bouted and non-bouted recommendations, and assessed differences in sociodemographic, health and fitness measures.

  • 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: 82-567-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.
