Canadian Active Living Environments - Geographic Variable in CCHS 2015-16


I am helping a researcher with the CCHS 2015-16 dataset and we were wondering about the “Canadian Active Living Environments” geographic variable. I am struggling to find metadata for this variable in the accompanying documentation. The Data Dictionary points me toward the “Derived Variable (DV) Specifications”, but there is nothing in that document listed for “Canadian Active Living Environments”.

Can someone direct me towards a webpage or pdf file with information about how this variable is derived?


Does this StatCan article help?

or the Canadian Active Living Environments Database (Can-ALE) User Manual & Technical Document:
