  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202400200002
    Description: The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted routine and preventive dental services until precautions could be implemented to limit virus transmission. Access to services for dental emergencies was maintained. This study describes self-reported access to oral health care services in Canada during the first 12-month period of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the reported need for routine or emergency oral health care. It also compares the access to, and the unmet need for, dental services by various sociodemographic characteristics, including by province.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300800001
    Description: Accessibility of food retail in communities may play a role in shaping the food choices of local residents. Canadian youth are frequent patrons of fast-food and other restaurant types, such as full-service restaurants and cafés. Studies linking local exposure to various restaurant types with diet-related behaviours and health outcomes have, to date, revealed mixed results. The current study uses a recently developed high-quality pan-Canadian dataset of food retail measures and a large population-based sample of Canadian children and youth to examine links between the local restaurant environment and the frequency of eating food from restaurants and intake of sugary drinks.

    Description:

    National health surveys and vital statistics registries are the cornerstones of surveillance, monitoring and policy development in most developed countries. This cohort profile describes the linkage of the Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition (2004) to the Canadian Vital Statistics - Death Database (2011). Further, the authors demonstrate how these data can be used in terms of potential analysis strategies, and discuss their strengths and limitations-considerations that could apply to any national nutrition survey worldwide.

    Description:

    Food insecurity linked to insufficient income is an important determinant of health. Whether the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated levels of food insecurity in Canada during the pandemic, particularly among vulnerable groups, is unclear. This study estimated the proportion of Canadians reporting experience of household food insecurity six-to-nine months into the COVID-19 pandemic, and drew comparisons to pre-pandemic levels.

    Description:

    Little empirical attention has been paid to patterns of Canadians' consumption of food away from home (FAFH) before the pandemic. According to a 2004 national-level dietary survey, one-quarter of Canadians reported having eaten something from a fast-food outlet on the previous day. More recent data on Canadians' FAFH consumption would serve as a valuable benchmark to estimate any post-pandemic changes in Canadians' dietary habits. This study used 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey-Nutrition, the most recent national-level dietary data available, to characterize patterns of FAFH consumption in a restaurant setting and to assess differences in the dietary intake profile on a day when FAFH was consumed or not consumed.

    Description:

    The family environment is an important influence on the health and behaviours of children. Few large-scale datasets include detailed and objectively measured health data about multiple individuals from the same family who are living in the same household. The Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) is a repeating, cross-sectional survey that selects two members of a household-a child and a randomly selected older member of the household aged 12 to 79 years-with at least one child aged 3 to 11 years in residence. These paired respondent records, available in the CHMS relationship files, provide unique opportunities to researchers interested in examining associations between two members of the same household for health behaviours and outcomes. This paper highlights the unique features, recommendations for use and research potential of paired data in the CHMS relationship files.

Indicators of physical and mental health and substance use are presented to highlight the health of young Canadians. Comparisons with older Canadians and trends mostly over the last 20 years are provided for context. When possible, indicators are also examined by sex, ethnicity and household income.

    Description:

    This study used the most recent national-level data available on Canadians' dietary intakes to describe the quantity and composition of Canadians' vegetable and fruit intake in 2015 and to compare these with estimates from 2004. A secondary objective of this study was to assess the distribution of usual vegetable and fruit consumption and how it relates to recommendations in the 2007 Canada Food Guide, which was the food guide in effect in 2015. Data are from the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Nutrition and the 2004 CCHS - Nutrition (Cycle 2.2).

    Description:

    Statistics Canada developed a new Physical Activity for Youth Questionnaire (PAYQ) to address the limitations of previous self-reporting and objective measurement. PAYQ was subsequently implemented in both the Canadian Health Measures Survey (2014-2015) and the Canadian Community Health Survey (2015-2016). Using those surveys, this study compares accelerometer-measured and self-reported physical activity from the new PAYQ among Canadian youth.
