    Description:

    The Canadian federal government legalized non-medical cannabis use by adults in October 2018. Ongoing monitoring of the effects of the change is needed because uncertainty remains about the impact of this legislation on cannabis use behaviours and whether the impact will affect some more than others. This study used data from Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey and its predecessor to examine longer-term historical rates of use during 2004 to 2017. Five iterations of National Cannabis Surveys (2018/2019) were used to examine current use (overall, daily/almost daily, quantities, and types of products) in the months before and after legalization.

    Description:

    This analysis examines the prevalence of, and the factors associated with people who reported using cannabis exclusively non-medically, and compares these results with those for people who reported some medical use in combination with non-medical use. This includes the use of other illicit drugs and the non-therapeutic use of at least one of three classes of psychoactive pharmaceuticals, in addition to the frequency of cannabis use (any purpose) in the past three months, as well as cannabis-related interference/harms, by the household population aged 15 and older in 2015. The data are from the cross-sectional 2015 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CTADS).

    Based on data from the 2015 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey and the 2014 General Social Survey on Victimization, this article examines recent cannabis use in Canada, with a focus on the characteristics of people who use cannabis. It also discusses the harmful effects from cannabis consumption reported by those who use cannabis, as well as the association between frequency of cannabis use and selected social indicators such as self-reported health, confidence in police and the justice system, and victimization.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201800254908
    Description:

    This study examined nine national surveys of the household population which collected information about drug use during the period from 1985 through 2015. These surveys are examined for comparability. The data are used to estimate past-year (current) cannabis use (total, and by sex and age). Based on the most comparable data, trends in use from 2004 through 2015 are estimated.

    Description:

    This analysis integrates data for age at smoking initiation, smoking patterns (ever/never smokers), and number of cigarettes smoked by age and gender from 13 Canadian population-based health surveys. Data for cohorts of individuals born between 1910 and 1985 were combined into a single dataset to analyze changes in smoking behaviour.The proportion of males and females who stated that they were current smokers declined considerably over the years; the proportion labelling themselves as former smokers has increased; and recent cohorts are smoking fewer cigarettes than those born earlier in the century. Although prevalence rates vary across birth cohorts, the pattern of use within each cohort is fairly similar, peaking during the middle years.Females are now starting to smoke at a much younger age than females born early in the twentieth century. Males are starting at a slightly younger age than in earlier cohorts. Since the first survey, more males than females have consistently stated that they were current smokers, although this gap has closed over time. The most recent survey data suggest that the gender gap for age at initiation and smoking rates is now very modest.This analysis contributes information about smoking patterns over time to a large integrative framework about population health in Canada: the Population Health Impact of Disease, Injury, and Health Determinants in Canada (PHI).

    Description:

    The objective of this working paper series is to analyse the comparability of surveys conducted by Statistics Canada on smoking, to highlight the changes in the data among data years and to illustrate their statistical significance. The aim is to clarify any confusion regarding comparability of survey estimates of smoking prevalence and daily cigarette consumption over this period, as well as to provide the user-requested data in a technical but understandable format.
