Canadian Health Measures Survey
2007 - 2019
The Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) is an ongoing, national survey administered by Statistics Canada in partnership with Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada.The survey collects important health information to create national baseline data on the extent of major health concerns. Launched in 2007, the CHMS collects information through household interviews and by means of direct physical measurements such as blood pressure, height, weight and physical fitness. In addition, the survey is collecting blood and urine samples as well as DNA sample from consenting participants.
Biobank Data results from analysis of the biosamples will be made available to researchers at Statistics Canada's Research Data Centres. Only aggregate statistical outputs conforming to the confidentiality provisions of the Statistics Act will be released.
Please note that additional documentation is available for this survey. Please contact your RDC analyst to request this documentation.
