Healthy Aging Phase 2 - New CCHS data has been linked to the CCR, the T1FF and to the CEN (short form)

February 26, 2020

Healthy Aging Phase 2: New Canadian Community Health Survey data has been linked to the Canadian Cancer Registry, the T1 Family Files and to the Census (short form) data and is now available in Research Data Centers across Canada.

Statistics Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) are pleased to announce the release of a linked data set that brings together data from both organizations. These linked data provide information that can be used for research on associations between behavioural, socio-economic and environmental factors, health outcomes and the use of hospital services.

As part of its data integration activities, Statistics Canada has linked the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) data from the Annual Component (2000-2017) and Focus Content Surveys (Mental Health 2002 and 2012, Nutrition 2004 and 2015, and Healthy Aging 2008/2009) with information from the Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR) (1992-2016), the T1 Family File (1993-2017) and the Census Short form (2011 and 2016).

Phase 2 adds to the phase 1 release (June 26, 2019) that linked  the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) data from the Annual Component (2000-2017) and Focus Content Surveys (Mental Health 2002 and 2012, Nutrition 2004 and 2015, and Healthy Aging 2008/2009) with the Canadian Vital Statistics Death Database (CVSD) (2000-2017), the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) (1999/00-2017/2018), the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) (2002/03-2017/18), the Ontario Mental Health Reporting System (OMHRS) (2006/07-2017/18) and historical postal codes (2000-2016).
