Title
Lifestyle Habits and Health Indicators of Québec Anglophones
Abstract
The authors examine the lifestyle habits and certain health indicators of Quebec Anglophones by area of residence, and compare these indicators with those of Francophones. The data is taken from the 2003, 2007−2008 and 2009−2010 cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey. The authors conclude that the data shows that there are few statistically significant differences in lifestyle habits and health indicators between Anglophones and Francophones, regardless of survey cycle or area of residence. Among the few significant differences the authors did find, Anglophones report eating fruits and vegetables less often and tended to be more prone to overweight than Francophones, but were also more physically active. Anglophones also seem to have a stronger sense of community belonging. The sample of Anglophones was relatively small in this survey, which the authors conclude reduces its statistical power and may partially account for the limited differences between the two linguistic groups.
