National Population Health Survey: North Component (NPHS)
Summary of changes
Activity on this program started: 1994
The North component was both cross-sectional and longitudinal in nature. However, for Cycle 3 (1998-1999) only a cross-sectional dataset was released by Statistics Canada mainly because the longitudinal panel was very small due to non-response and tracing difficulties and contains respondents who do not live in the Northern Territories anymore.
The NPHS North component ended after three cycles, i.e. in 1998-1999. Since 2000-2001 the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) collects cross-sectional health data in the Northern Territories every two years.
