Validation Data Source: The CCHS was conducted by Statistics Canada to provide regular and timely cross-sectional estimates of health determinants, health status and health system utilization for a total of 136 health regions in Canada, including the territories. Survey respondents were sampled from 11 regions in Manitoba. Respondents were 12 years of age and older; the sampling methodology was designed to ensure over-representation of youth under 19 years of age and seniors 65 years of age and older. Sample sizes were chosen to produce reliable estimates at the health region level. The sample size allocated to each province was based on total population, and then each province’s sample size was allocated among its health regions proportionately to the square root of the estimated population of a region.
