description:
The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) is a cross-sectional survey that collects information related to health status, health care utilization and health determinants for the Canadian population. The CCHS operates on a two-year collection cycle. The first year of the survey cycle l.1 is a large sample, general population health sur vey, designed to provide reliable estimates at the health region level. The second year of the survey cycle l.2 is a smaller survey designed to provide provincial level results on specific focused health topics. This Microdata File contains data collected in the third year of collection for the CCHS (Cycle 2.1). Information was collected between January 2003 and December 2003, for 126 health regions, covering all provinces and territories. The CCHS (Cycle 2.1) collects responses from persons aged 12 or older, living in private occupied dwellings. Excluded from the sampling frame are individuals living on Indian Reserves and on Crown Lands, institutional residents, full-time members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and residents of certain remote regions. The CCHS covers approximately 98% of the Canadian population aged 12 and over.
