Title
Access to Health and Social Services: A Comparison of French & English-Language CROP-CHSSN Survey Samples
Abstract
This report relays health and social service findings from the 2010 CHSSN‐CROP Survey on Community Vitality Survey and compares the findings from English‐speaking and French speaking survey respondents. The commonalities and distinct features of both language communities within the provincial population are delineated as well as sub‐groups defined by gender, age, household income, and health status. For this comparative study, a total of 3,195 English‐speaking Quebecers aged 18 and over were interviewed over the telephone, and 1,001 French‐speaking Quebecers aged 18 and over were interviewed over the telephone. English‐speaking respondents across Quebec were less likely (63.2 percent) than French speakers (67.9 percent) to assess their health as very good or excellent when compared to other persons their age. Among French‐speaking respondents, 70.3 percent reported having used the services of a doctor in a private office or clinic in the previous twelve months compared to 73 percent of English speakers who reported doing so. French‐speaking respondents (48.9 percent) were somewhat less likely to report using CLSC services in the previous twelve months when compared to English speakers (52.9 percent). English and French –speaking respondents were about equally likely to have used a hospital emergency room or out‐patient clinic. Generally, English‐speaking survey respondents were participants in a club or social organization at a greater rate (33.1 percent) than French‐speaking respondents (22.9 percent).
