3. Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS)  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Data
TOPIC(S): CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE, CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD), ASTHMA, ARTHRITIS, DIABETES, EATING DISORDERS, LUNG CANCER, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, CERVICAL CANCER, OVARIAN CANCER, ENDOCRINE DISRUPTION, LUPUS, ENVIRONMENTAL SENSITIVITIES, PREGNANCY
This national longitudinal survey collects health information through a household interview and direct physical measures at a mobile clinic in order to create national baseline data on the extent of such major health concerns as: obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, exposure to infectious diseases, and exposure to environmental contaminants. By collecting physical measures from the survey population, the CHMS includes individuals at varying levels of health who may or may not seek medical treatment. As such, it will be able to provide an estimate of the number of Canadians who show signs of a previously undetected illness or who may be unaware that they have a condition. The biomonitoring component of the survey measures the levels of over 80 environmental contaminants, including many endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Data are disaggregated by age and sex.

REGION:  INTERNATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): LUNG CANCER, TOBACCO
Although available data clearly demonstrates differing trends in lung cancer mortality for men and women, it is only in the last few years that there has been an increased awareness of the differences in lung cancer risk associated with both sex (i.e. biological factors) and gender or socially constructed factors. Despite the growing body of research which explores the ways in which different patterns of lung cancer incidence, mortality and survival might be associated with sex and gender, uncertainties about a number of aspects of the disease and how it differs for men and women remain.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Report on the Environment features a database logging trends in cancer incidence across the American population from 1973-2007. The purpose of this database is  to isolate trends in human disease that could be elevated due to environmental risk factors. This database uses national data to provide a comprehensive view of cancer incidence. Database findings are discussed in text, and are complemented by charts outlining cancer incidence by top types of cancer, and by gender breakdown. The database does not identify particularly vulnerable populations within the national population.
