  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202000100002
    Description:

    Using data from the Canadian Cancer Registry, this study examines thyroid cancer (TC) incidence from 1992 to 2016. It presents sex-specific incidence estimates according to age, histology and province for the most recent five-year period (2012 to 2016), and examines changes in rates over the entire period. These findings are supplemented with similar information on TC mortality and five-year net survival.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900400002
    Description:

    Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in Canadian men. This study reports on trends in prostate cancer incidence, mortality, and stage at diagnosis in Canada from 1992 to 2015. It builds on previous Statistics Canada work by providing an up-to-date and in-depth analysis of trends in prostate cancer incidence, mortality and stage at diagnosis over time and by age group, including the impact of the updated (2014) Canadian prostate cancer screening guidelines. Data are from Statistics Canada's Canadian Cancer Registry and the Canadian Vital Statistics - Death Database Statistics Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201801200003
    Description:

    This study presents cancer incidence by stage at diagnosis for the top four cancers, using data from the Canadian Cancer Registry for the combined period of 2011 to 2015.

    Release date: 2018-12-19

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201801000001
    Description:

    Using the 1991 and 2001 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohorts (CanCHECs), this study examines thyroid cancer incidence over nine years of follow up; presents estimates of the sex-specific relative risk of thyroid cancer according to age, immigrant status, ethnicity, educational attainment and family income; and examines whether these relative risks changed over time.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201800900002
    Description:

    This report provides predicted estimates of net survival (NS) for the 2012 to 2014 period. NS estimates for durations of 1, 5 and 10 years are derived for 30 of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in people aged 15 to 99. Five-year age-standardized and age-specific estimates for 2012 to 2014 are compared with corresponding figures for cases diagnosed 20 years previously.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201800800001
    Description:

    The objective of this study is to report the population rate of surgical treatment of incident primary female breast tumours diagnosed from 2010 to 2012 overall, and by disease stage in Canada (excluding Quebec). This study uses newly linked Canadian Cancer Registry and hospital discharge data, created in the Canadian Cancer Treatment Linkage Project by Statistics Canada in 2016.

  • Articles and reports: 11-633-X2018016
    Description:

    Record linkage has been identified as a potential mechanism to add treatment information to the Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR). The purpose of the Canadian Cancer Treatment Linkage Project (CCTLP) pilot is to add surgical treatment data to the CCR. The Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) were linked to the CCR, and surgical treatment data were extracted. The project was funded through the Cancer Data Development Initiative (CDDI) of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC).

    The CCTLP was developed as a feasibility study in which patient records from the CCR would be linked to surgical treatment records in the DAD and NACRS databases, maintained by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. The target cohort to whom surgical treatment data would be linked was patients aged 19 or older registered on the CCR (2010 through 2012). The linkage was completed in Statistics Canada’s Social Data Linkage Environment (SDLE).

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201700514790
    Description:

    The present study sought to determine if large-scale patterns of association between ambient ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and melanoma incidence exist in Canada. Modelled UVR data were spatially linked to members of the 1991 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort, a dataset comprising 2.6 million census respondents who were followed for melanoma diagnosis over an 18-year period.

    Description:

    Based on data from the Sun Safety Module of the Canadian Community Health Survey, this study quantifies sunburns and sun protection practices during leisure time, by socioeconomic and demographic characteristics.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2016381
    Description:

    Changes in health status may affect not just the individuals who experience such changes, but also their family members. For example, if the main earner in a family loses his or her ability to generate income due to a health shock, it invariably affects the financial situation of the spouse and other dependents. In addition, spouses and working-age children may themselves increase or reduce their labour supply to make up for the lost income (“added worker effect”) or care for a sick family member (“caregiver effect”). Since consumption smoothing and self-insurance occur at the household level, the financial effects of health for other family members have important policy implications. To shed light on such effects, this study analyzes how one spouse’s cancer diagnosis affects the employment and earnings of the other spouse and (before-tax) total family income using administrative data from Canada.
