Read the full newsletter below for more information: Physical activity of Canadian children and their parent Statistics Canada just released a new research article entitled, “Associations between parent and child sedentary behaviour and physical activity in early childhood.” This article presents new national-level results from our Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS). The CHMS is uniquely positioned to provide analytical opportunities to researchers who are interested in examining relationships between a parent and child in terms of health behaviours and outcomes. These data can be used to answer the following questions: Why are so few children meeting the physical activity recommendation target? How much does a parent’s physical activity level influence that of their child? What other family dynamics can be explored using data on children and parents living in the same household? Chat with an expert On February 21, 2020, Statistics Canada will be hosting a Chat with an Expert session with our Health Analysis researchers to discuss the results from this article on physical activity. Join us! When: Friday, February 21, 2020, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Eastern time Experts: Rachel Colley, Didier Garriguet and Kellie Langlois.
