Canada’s Most Up to Date, Interactive Public Health Report Card (CCHS 2016, 2015)

I recently updated my 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) Tableau dashboards which showed results in an interactive report card format, with 2016 data. WordPress does not allow JavaScript usage for me to embed those report cards, to explain how they worked and what information you could gather from them far faster, and more effectively, than just from data tables. However, I was able to do it on another site through the link below.

Interactive Public Health Report Cards for CCHS 2015 and 2016, on Tableau Public

If you view it and have any questions or feedback, please leave them there so the discussions can be in one place as much as possible.

The combined year results, with much more granular geographic results, will be explained soon, but are already posted here if you want to look ahead of time. Thank you.

How do YOU Physically Measure Up to Canadians?

I just created an interactive dashboard with distributions of the Canadian population physical health measurements like standing and sitting height, weight, BMI, waist, hip and waist hip ratio, by gender and age group demographics, as measured and released by the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS). More than just averages, there are percentile distributions of 5, 10, 25, 50 (median), 75, 90 and 95, so you can see roughly what portions of the populations are more or less than you in those measurements. More details are in the post with the link because I can’t post the dashboard here with JavaScript not being allowed on WordPress.

See how you stack up, or put in average values from different jurisdictions, like country, state, country bloc, etc. and see how they compare to Canadians!

How I Will Examine my 23andMe Genotyping Results, and How I Will Share Them

From my experience with 23andMe’s genotyping service, when results were ready, I got 254 reports all at once, and they didn’t even include much of the ancestry reports! The reports are listed at the end, and were in groupings of:

  • Health risks (120)
  • Drug response (24)
  • Inherited conditions (50)
  • Traits (60)
  • 3 special reports needing individual approval among above groupings
  • 3 health tools to assess some features about you
