Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS)
The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) provides cross-sectional (at one point in time) estimates of the factors related to health status, health care utilization and health determinants for the Canadian population. The survey contains questions on a wide range of health topics, including: physical activity, height and weight, smoking, exposure to secondhand smoke, alcohol consumption, general health, chronic health conditions, injuries, use of health care services and related socio-demographic information.
Statistics Canada Ontario Share File distributed by the Ontario Ministry of Health
- The Ontario Share File has a slightly smaller sample size than the Master File and Public Use Micro File (PUMF). This is because respondents must agree to share their information with the province to be included in the Share File.
- The target population of the CCHS includes household residents (aged 12 and over) in all provinces and territories, with the exclusion of populations in First Nations Communities (referred to by Statistics Canada as Indian Reserves), Canadian Forces Bases, and some remote areas.
