Statistics Canada: Health Reports

February 2009

The February 2009 edition of Health Reports contains two articles.

The article, “The natural history of heath-related quality of life: A 10-year cohort study,” describes how Canadians’ health evolves as they age from mid- to late life. Unlike many other studies, the analysis follows individuals through the transition from households to institutions. For more information, contact Heather M. Orpana (613-951-1650;, Health Information and Research Division.The article, “Combining cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey,” presents methods of combining cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey and discusses issues to consider if these data are to be combined.
