Updated Products - Canadian Health Measures Survey

Please note the updated products listed below and the path to access them via the EFT site.

Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) documentation is now available through the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI). - version 2

The CHMS is conducted by Statistics Canada in partnership with Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The survey collects health information through self-reported questionnaires as well as direct physical measures. This information helps to
evaluate the extent of health problems associated with major health concerns, such as chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes and cardiovascular disease), infectious diseases, lifestyle characteristics (e.g., physical activity and nutritional status) and environmental
exposure. The survey also provides a platform to explore emerging public health issues and new measurement technologies.
