National Population Health Survey: North Component (NPHS)

Summary of changes

Activity on this program started: 1994

Reference period of change - 1998-1999

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.
