New Data: Canadian Community Health Survey ‑ Nutrition (CCHS) 2015
The Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition (CCHS) 2015 is now available for use by researchers working in the Atlantic Research Data Centre.
The objectives of the Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition are:
(1) To collect detailed data on the consumption of foods and dietary supplements among a representative sample of Canadians at national and provincial levels;
(2) To estimate the distribution of usual dietary intake in terms of nutrients from foods, food groups, dietary supplements and eating patterns;
(3) To gather anthropometric (physical) measurements for accurate body weight and height assessment to interpret dietary intake;
(4) To support the interpretation and analysis of dietary intake data by collecting data on selected health conditions and socio-economic and demographic characteristics; and
(5) To evaluate changes in dietary intake from the 2004 CCHS - Nutrition.
The data collected from the survey will be used by Statistics Canada, Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada, provincial and territorial ministries of health, as well as federal and provincial health planners across the country, industry and researchers and health professionals. Results from our surveys are used extensively for policy-making and program development that affect Canadian communities.
