Health Reports: “Health of First Nations children living off reserve and Métis children younger than age 6”

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 >

February 2012 online edition

The February 2012 online issue of Health Reports, released today, contains two articles.

The first article, “Health of First Nations children living off reserve and Métis children younger than age 6,” examines parent- or guardian-reported data about the general health, chronic conditions and physical limitations of First Nations children living off reserve and Métis children. Data from the 2006 Aboriginal Children’s Survey were used to investigate measures of child health and assess possible associations with social determinants of health.

For more information on this article, contact Leanne Findlay (613-951-4648; [email protected]), Health Analysis Division.The second article, “Assessment of validity of self-reported smoking status,” compares estimates of the prevalence of cigarette smoking based on self-reported data with estimates based on urinary cotinine concentrations. The data are from the 2007 to 2009 Canadian Health Measures Survey, which included self-reported smoking status and the first nationally representative measures of urinary cotinine.
