Abstract

The Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay and the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) have just published 10 technical reports containing the results of the 2003 Canadian Community Health Survey carried out in Iiyiyiu Aschii.

One thousand people in all nine Cree communities were surveyed about their health, lifestyle choices, and their views on the health services they receive through the CBHSSJB.

The books are bilingual (in French and English) and include results on various aspects of health affecting residents of Iiyiyiu Aschii and they also provide comparisons with 1991 data from the region and 2003 data from the rest of Quebec (Santé Québec, 1 994; Statistics Canada, 2003). These analyses are relevant for everyone concerned with the health of Iiyiyiu Aschii residents (professionals, administrators, planners, and researchers).

 

Ten publications were produced as part of this survey:

• Demographic and social characteristics of the population living in Iiyiyiu Aschii

Food habits, physical activity and body weight

• Cigarette consumption

• Lifestyles related to alcohol consumption, drugs and gambling

• Preventive practices and changes for improving health

• Health status, life expectancy and limitation of activities

• Injuries and transportation safety

• Mental health

• Use and perceptions of health services

• Survey methods
