    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.
