The question was designed to measure various aspects of community health status within a long population survey administered to adults across Canada. Not designed or validated for program evaluations. Cognitive testing by the Government of Canada used phone interviews, not written surveys. However, questions from this instrument have been used in written surveys to assess community health, such as in the Canadian Index of Wellbeing project.
A count of the number of respondents who selected "every day" or "almost every day"
A count of respondents who answered the question
This indicator is comprised of one data element. The numerator is the number of respondents who selected "every day" or "almost every day" from the following options:
*Every day *Almost every day *About 2 or 3 times a week *About once a week *Once or twice *Never
NOTE: In the data element, the values have been ordered from 1 "never" to 6 "every day" to make them align with the Omaha System. If using Statistics Canada population data, verify the values for each answer before making any comparisons (i.e., ensure that 1=never and 6=every day).
