A health profile of the Inuit

Report of the Santé Québec health survey among the Inuit of Nunavik, 1992
Health determining factors – Volume 1

The report of the survey of the residents of 14 Inuit villages in Nunavik conducted in 1992 draws a general portrait of the health status of that population.

The report is divided into three volumes. This first volume presents certain determinants of the health of the Inuit population, such as: contaminants; smoking, alcohol and drug use; eating habits, physical activity and obesity; preventive behaviours; environment and social support.

The target population of the survey comprises all persons living permanently in Inuit private households and residing in the Nunavik region. The sample includes 400 households and 618 individuals aged 15 and over.
