Canadian Health Measures Survey: Supplementary environmental data

Friday, April 1, 2011 >

2007 to 2009

New environmental data derived from the laboratory component of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) are now available.

Data on phthalates, nicotine, nicotine metabolites and NNAL (a class of nicotine-derived substances which are studied for their role in tobacco-associated cancers) have been added to the survey data file. These data complete the indicators on more than 80 environmental contaminants and chemical substances which were analyzed in the blood and urine samples of CHMS respondents. The CHMS collected key information relevant to the health of Canadians by means of direct physical measurements, including blood and urine samples, from a representative sample of Canadians aged 6 to 79. Data were collected from March 2007 to February 2009 and are available at the national level only.Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 5071.
