    Description:

    Using data from cycles 3 (2012 to 2013) and 4 (2014 to 2015) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey, this study describes Canadians aged 19 to 79 who, when working in noisy environments, were not required to wear hearing protection and only did so sometimes, rarely or never. Characteristics of these workers are examined, as well as sources of noise, years worked in noisy environments, and adverse outcomes-specifically, self-reported hearing difficulties and tinnitus.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5071
    Description: The Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) aims to collect important health information through a household interview and direct physical measures at a mobile examination centre (MEC), sometimes referred to as a mobile clinic.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5201
    Description: The health effects reported by individuals living in communities in close proximity to noise sources such as traffic, airports, railways and wind turbine installations are not fully understood due to limited scientific research in this area. The CNHS was developed to address this gap by investigating the prevalence of health effects or health indicators among a sample of Canadians exposed to these noise sources using both self-reported and objective health measures.
