    Description:

    A selective approach may be used in an ecological study where the aim is to choose a subset of units of analysis (UAs) and produce interpretations about a population of interest (PI) based solely on those UAs. The results for the PI will be reliable if that population is concentrated in the selected UAs and rare in other UAs. This article presents a graphical tool that helps determine whether these conditions are satisfied.

    Description:

    Using data from the 2007 General Social Survey, this article investigates new national level data on caregiving. It is well established that family and friends provide care to ailing seniors. Focusing on caregivers aged 45 and over, the article examines whether family and friend care differs by the type of health problem the senior has (be it physical or mental), or whether the care was provided to a senior living in a private household or care facility. We also look at who provides care to seniors, which tasks are provided and how often, how caregivers cope, and where they turn in order to seek support. Included is a profile of the seniors 65 years and over with a long-term health problem who were receiving care from these caregivers.

    Description:

    A 24-hour dietary recall from 16,190 respondents aged 12 or older to the Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition was used to determine energy and nutrient intake. To identify plausible respondents, a confidence interval was applied to total energy expenditure derived from equations developed by the Institute of Medicine. Estimates of energy and nutrient intake for plausible respondents were compared with estimates for all respondents.

    Description:

    Canada's military makes up a small but significant segment of Canadian society and is an important part of the country's national image, both at home and abroad. After declining through the 1990s, the forces have grown since 2001, reaching 88,000 in 2006. This article profiles the personnel of the Canadian Forces as a special occupational group distinct from the rest of the Canadian labour force. It also compares the military's prevalence of rates of work stress and other work-related mental health issues with those of the civilian working population and investigates whether any specific groups experience a higher prevalence.

    Description:

    Do Canadians have the information they need to plan for retirement? Drawing on data from the 2007 General Social survey, this article examines the "informational resources" of Canadians aged 45 to 59. While most individuals receive financial advice, understand the basic structure of their pension, and say they understand Canada's public retirement income programs, significant proportions do not. The characteristics associated with differences in this regard are examined.

    Description:

    This study uses data from the Canadian Survey of Experiences with Primary Health Care to assess the degree to which Canadians have access to primary health care teams and the impact of those teams on processes of care and on outcomes. The study is comprised of three projects: determinants of access to primary health care teams (Project 1); the impact of primary health care teams on various processes of care (Project 2); and identification of pathways through which primary health care teams affect outcomes of care (Project 3).

    Description:

    In this study, I examine the factorial validity of selected modules from the Canadian Survey of Experiences with Primary Health Care (CSE-PHC), in order to determine the potential for combining the items within each module into summary indices representing global primary health care concepts. The modules examined were: Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC), Patient Activation (PA), Managing Own Health Care (MOHC), and Confidence in the Health Care System (CHCS). Confirmatory factor analyses were conducted on each module to assess the degree to which multiple observed items reflected the presence of common latent factors. While a four-factor model was initially specified for the PACIC instrument on the basis of priory theory and research, it did not fit the data well; rather, a revised two-factor model was found to be most appropriate. These two factors were labelled: "Whole Person Care" and "Coordination of Care". The remaining modules studied here (i.e., PA, MOHC, and CHCS) were all well-represented by single-factor models. The results suggest that the original factor structure of the PACIC developed within studies using clinical samples does not hold in general populations, although the precise reasons for this are not clear. Further empirical investigation will be required to shed more light on this discrepancy. The two factors identified here for the PACIC, as well as the single factors produced for the PA, MOHC, and CHCS could be used as the basis of summary indices for use in further analyses with the CSE-PHC.

    Description:

    This article compares associations between body mass index categories based on self-reported versus measured data with selected health conditions. The goal is to determine if the misclassification resulting from the use of self-reported data alters associations between excess weight and these health conditions. The analysis is based on 2,667 respondents aged 40 or older from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey.

    Description:

    This report highlights the latest developments and rationale behind recent cycles of the General Social Survey (GSS). Starting with an overview of the GSS mandate and historic cycle topics, we then focus on two recent cycles related to families in Canada: Family Transitions (2006) and Family, Social Support and Retirement (2007). Finally, we give a summary of what is to come in the 2008 GSS on Social Networks, and describe a special project to mark 'Twenty Years of GSS'.

    The survey collects data over a twelve month period from the population living in private households in the 10 provinces. For all cycles except Cycles 16 and 21, the population aged 15 and older has been sampled. Cycles 16 and 21 sampled persons aged 45 and older.

    Cycle 20 (GSS 2006) is the fourth cycle of the GSS to collect data on families (the first three cycles on the family were in 1990, 1995 and 2001). Cycle 20 covers much the same content as previous cycles on families with some sections revised and expanded. The data enable analysts to measure conjugal and fertility history (chronology of marriages, common-law unions, and children), family origins, children's home leaving, fertility intentions, child custody as well as work history and other socioeconomic characteristics. Questions on financial support agreements or arrangements (for children and the ex-spouse or ex-partner) for separated and divorced families have been modified. Also, sections on social networks, well-being and housing characteristics have been added.
