    Description:

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second cause of cancer deaths in Canada. Randomized controlled trials (RCT) have shown the efficacy of screening using faecal occult blood tests (FOBT). A comprehensive evaluation of the costs and consequences of CRC screening for the Canadian population is required before implementing such a program. This paper evaluates whether or not the CRC screening is cost-effective. The results of these simulations will be provided to the Canadian National Committee on Colorectal Cancer Screening to help formulate national policy recommendations for CRC screening.

    Statistics Canada's Population Health Microsimulation Model was updated to incorporate a comprehensive CRC screening module based on Canadian data and RCT efficacy results. The module incorporated sensitivity and specificity of FOBT and colonoscopy, participation rates, incidence, staging, diagnostic and therapeutic options, disease progression, mortality and direct health care costs for different screening scenarios. Reproducing the mortality reduction observed in the Funen screening trial validated the model.

    Description:

    The objective of this study was to analyse the influence of community on individual health. The new Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) was used to derive individual health variables for Canadian residents aged 18 or older while community-level data were obtained from the Canadian 1996 Census of Population. Weighted logistic multilevel models and principal component analysis were used to analyse these data. After controlling for individual variables, there was little variation between communities. However, the influence of the community was more important for people with low family income than those with higher income.

    Description:

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    To fill statistical gaps in the areas of health determinants, health status and health system usage by the Canadian population at the health region levels (sub-provincial areas or regions of interest to health authorities), Statistics Canada established a new survey called the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS). The CCHS consists of two separate components: a regional survey in the first year and a provincial survey in the second year. The main purpose of the regional survey, for which collection took place between September 2000 and October 2001, was to produce cross-sectional estimates for 136 health regions in Canada, based on a sample of more than 134,000 respondents. This article focuses on the various measures taken at the time of data collection to ensure a high level of quality for this large-scale survey.

    Description:

    The study examined the characteristics of people who reported their health as poor or fair in the Canadian Community Health Survey of 2000/01. The results expand on the conclusions of an article titled "The health of Canada's communities," released in The daily on July 4. That article found that self-perceived health status differed substantially between health regions and that regional socio-economic factors were clearly associated with average health status in each region. People living in large metropolitan areas and urban centres, where education levels are high, had the highest life expectancies in all of Canada. At the other end of the spectrum, people living in remote northern communities, where education levels are lower, had poorer health.

    This new article examines the extent to which this regional variation is attributable to the composition of the population within each health region, rather than to the socio-economic context of the region.

    Description:

    As the population ages, a greater demand for long-term care services and, in particular, nursing homes is expected. Policy analysts continue to search for alternative, less costly forms of care for the elderly and have attempted to develop programs to delay or prevent nursing-home entry. Health care administrators required information for planning the future demand for nursing-home services. This study assesses the relative importance of predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics in predicting and understanding nursing-home entry.

    Description:

    The current economic context obliges all partners of health-care systems, whether public or private, to identify those factors that determine the use of health-care services. To increase our understanding of the phenomena that underlie these relationships, Statistics Canada and the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy and Evaluation have established a new database. For a representative sample of the province of Manitoba, cross-sectional micro-data on the level of health of individuals and on their socioeconomic characteristics, and detailed longitudinal data on the use of health-care services have been linked. In this presentation, we will discuss the general context of the linkage of records from various organizations, the protection of privacy and confidentiality. We will also present results of studies which should not have been performed in the absence of the linked database.
