CCHS 2008/2009


I have a prof needing the following information:

1. Do you have this yet? Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Healthy Aging 2008/2009 PUMF?

2. Do we have access to the Canadian Health Measures Survey? I see documentation on the DLI FTP site, but no data. When is the data likely to be available?

Thank you in advance for your help.


We do not have the CCHS Healthy Aging 2008/09 PUMF yet. Our latest information does indicate that it should be released this month, so I have asked the author division for an update.

The Canadian Health Measures Survey is available in the RDCs. At the request of some members at a presentation at the DLI training in Toronto last year, the Division provided the DLI with documentation for users interested in finding out what information is gathered from that survey. There are not enough data at this point to create a PUMF from that survey. It will take at least another year before deciding if they can create a PUMF or not. In the meantime, the Division has offered to do some free custom tabulations from that survey. If you are interested in following-up on this, we will put you in contact with a client service representative from the Division.

I hope this is clear. I will get back to you with more information about the CCHS 2008/09 PUMF release date as soon as I hear back from the division.

Additional Information

As a follow-up to my initial response below, the author division just confirmed that they now expect to release the CCHS 2008/09 PUMF in February 2011. They have offered to provide us with the exact date as soon as it is determined so we will keep you posted.

I will have the product release dates page updated to reflect this new information.
