All data has been drawn from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Mental Health, 2012.
The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Mental Health is a cross-sectional survey that collected information about the factors, influences and processes that contribute to mental health through a multidisciplinary approach focusing on health, social and economic determinants.
The CCHS - Mental Health covers the population 15 years of age and over living in the ten provinces. Excluded from the survey's coverage are residents of the three territories, persons living on reserves or other Aboriginal settlements, full-time members of the Canadian Forces, and the institutionalized population. Altogether, these exclusions represent less than 3% of the target population. Data were collected between January and December 2012.
The CCHS is a joint effort of Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, Statistics Canada, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
