Canadian Community Health Survey - Annual Component (CCHS)

Perceived health of person, proportion

Perceived health refers to the perception of a person's health in general, either by the person themselves or, in the case of proxy response, by the person responding. Health means not only the absence of disease or injury but also physical, mental and social well being.

Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programs.

The data for this variable are reported using the following measurements:

  • Age standardized rate
  • Percentage
