Title
Health Profile of Linguistic Communities in Québec : Language as Determinant of Health and Quality of Services
Abstract
The authors outline a comparative health profile of Anglophones and Allophones to Francophones based on data from the 2014-2015 Québec Population Health Survey. Their study addressed a number of topics broken down into sixteen indicators covering behaviors associated with prevention and health promotion, certain aspects of physical and mental health status, as well as occupational health. The authors found that for the majority of the indicators studied in this health profile, Anglophones were comparable, proportionately speaking, to Francophones. Among Allophones, half of the results for indicators with no methodological obstacles were comparable to the situation among Francophones. However, the authors found that there were still some differences: Anglophones, compared to Francophones, had a favorable profile for consistent condom use, psychological distress, and non-traumatic work-related musculoskeletal disorders, but were proportionately less likely to use contraception and more likely to use cannabis and struggle with work-life balance.
