    Description:

    Worldwide, depression is the leading cause of years lived with disability. It can affect many aspects of life, including work. In fact, the impact of depression on job performance has been estimated to be greater than that of chronic conditions. In 2002, almost 4% of employed Canadians aged 25 to 64 had had an episode of depression in the previous year. These workers had high odds of reducing work activity because of a long-term health condition, having at least one mental health disability day in the past two weeks, and being absent from work in the past week. In addition, depression was associated with reduced work activity and disability days two years later.

    Description:

    The Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) was developed to address important data gaps and limitations in current health information by collecting directly measured indicators of health and wellness on a representative sample of approximately 5,000 Canadians aged 6 to 79 years. The survey entails an in-home general health interview and a subsequent visit to a mobile clinic where direct physical measures are taken (anthropometry, spirometry, blood pressure, fitness, physical activity, oral health examination, blood and urine specimens). These data are analyzed for indicators of general health, chronic disease, infectious disease and environmental biomarkers, and biospecimens are stored for future research.The five articles in this supplement to Health Reports provide detailed information on:the rationale and background of the CHMS; the pre-test that took place in the fall of 2004; the sampling strategy; the ethical, legal and social issues involved in a direct measures survey; and the operations and logistics of the mobile clinics. The first article, "Rationale, background and overview", outlines the need for direct measures surveys, describes Canada's experience with such surveys and the experience in other countries, and provides an overview of all aspects of the CHMS. The second article, "Pre-test design, methods, results", is a detailed description of the pre-test conducted in Calgary, Alberta from October through December, 2004. The objectives of the pre-test, which replicated the planned design for the full CHMS as closely as possible, were to: determine Canadians' willingness to participate in a direct health measures survey; assess the human resource and financial costs; examine response rates, processes and materials; and test planning assumptions. The third article, "Sampling strategy overview", deals with survey design; sample size; creation, selection and allocation of sites; and dwelling and respondent sampling. A balance between logistical and cost considerations and national coverage resulted in 15 collection sites being selected that covered 96.3% of the Canadian population. The fourth article, "Ethical, legal and social issues", outlines the unique challenges surrounding consent and privacy that are involved in a direct measures survey and how the CHMS went about addressing them. The CHMS is the first survey for which Statistics Canada sought the expertise of a Research Ethics Board, with informed consent being its key focus. Finally, "Clinic operations and logistics", describes the practical aspects of equipping, staffing, setting up and closing down mobile clinics; the details of a clinic visit; and the complex logistics involved in gathering and transmitting the data collected at the clinics.

    The Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) is Canada's national survey that gathers information about adults and children whose daily activities are limited by a physical, mental, or other health-related condition or problem.

    This report presents some basic information about the survey and an overview of the methodological and content changes between the 2001 and 2006 PALS. The major difference involves a change in coverage resulting from the inclusion of a number of aboriginal communities, the addition of the three territories, and the modification to the definition of collective dwellings.

It focuses on the interest of youth in health occupations, the characteristics of students and faculty in university health programs, the labour market experiences of recent graduates from these programs, and the ongoing participation of health workers in formal and informal training.
