The sample for the 2008/2009 Canadian Community Health Survey–Healthy Aging consisted of 30,865 respondents aged 45 or older in the 10 provinces; 82.6% of them, numbering 25,486, agreed to share their data and allow it to be linked to other databases.

This analysis excluded 4,558 Quebec residents; 539 respondents for whom nutritional risk data were missing; 9,710 respondents aged 45 to 64; and 801 respondents who had been hospitalized during the year before their interview.
