    Description:

    This article presents diabetes prevalence by age, sex and province or territory for the population aged 12 and over, using data from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey. The article also examines questions related to specific health care received by individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes. These questions are part of a module introduced in the survey to respond to a lack of data in regards to detailed information on health care required to the prevention of serious complications resulting from diabetes. The module was offered as optional content to health regions from across Canada. In the 2005 Cycle, health regions from Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Ontario and Manitoba all selected the diabetic care module. Analysis on diabetic care only includes respondents aged 18 and over.

  • Technical products: 82-621-X2005001
    Description:

    This article provides estimates on the extent to which Canadians aged 12 or older feel a sense of belonging to their local community. People more likely to have a strong sense of community belonging are profiled, in terms of personal characteristics such as age and marital status, socio-economic variables such as education and income, and geographic variables such as province and health region. The relationship between community-belonging and health is studied by examining associations with self-perceived general and mental health.

    The results are based on a 6-month file that includes data collected from January to June 2005. Tables presenting information on self-rated health and mental health, body mass index, smoking, sense of community-belonging and regular medical doctor by province, health regions, age groups and sex are also available.

    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:

    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 2001 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) is a post-censal survey of adults and children whose everyday activities are limited because of a condition or health problem. A sample of those persons who answered "Yes" to the 2001 Census disability filter questions were included in the PALS survey population. Approximately 35,000 adults and 8,000 children living in private, and some collective, households in the 10 provinces were selected to participate in the survey. The data were collected in the fall of 2001. The survey was last conducted after the 1991 Census under the title of the 1991 Health and Activity Limitation Survey (HALS). This report presents an overview of the methodological and content changes between the 1991 HALS and the 2001 PALS. The major differences include new census disability filter questions, a new sampling plan and new questionnaire content.
