The Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition is a national health survey that collected information from Canadians about their eating habits and use of nutritional supplements, as well as other health factors. In June 2017, the data from this survey was released. This symposium will be an opportunity to share recent results on Canadian food and nutrient intakes using this rich source of data. It will also allow for discussion on how the results from CCHS-Nutrition 2015 can be compared to the previous national nutrition survey (2004 CCHS (Cycle 2.2)) results.

Learning Objectives:

This session will be an opportunity for participants:

Leslie Geran: 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) – Nutrition

Cynthia Colapinto: Preliminary analyses from the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey – Nutrition

The 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey - Nutrition represents the most recent comprehensive national-level nutrition data for Canada. The objective of this presentation is to describe preliminary analyses being conducted by the Government of Canada using this rich data source, which include: 1) Health Canada analyses to derive dietary patterns that exist in the Canadian population using Principal Component Analysis and 2) recent analyses by Statistics Canada, in collaboration with Health Canada, to examine the total sugars intakes of Canadians, including a comparison between survey years (2004 and 2015), which will also provide an example of how misreporting can be considered when examining these data. The policy relevance of these analyses will be highlighted, in particular how the results are being used to inform the Healthy Eating Strategy, including the revision of Canada's Food Guide.

Didier Garriguet: Comparison of results from the Canadian Community Health Surveys-Nutrition 2004 vs 2015

This presentation has a rather large but simple objective: how do we explain sometimes large differences between the 2004 and 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey – Nutrition estimates? Using examples such as energy intake and beverage intakes, this presentation will first explore the impact that changes made to the database have on nutrient/consumption/intake/the estimates. Second, it will explore the impact of misreporting and suggest/describe/provide options on how to make the 2004 and 2015 samples more comparable. Third, it will assess changes to the food booklet and discuss the consequences of these changes. Finally, given these methodological considerations, conclusions can be drawn to fully explain how usual intake can be compared between the two surveys. At the end of this presentation, current and future data users will have the necessary, additional tools for understanding and comparing these two nationally-representative surveys.
