A health profile of the inuit

Report of the Santé Québec health survey among the inuit of Nunavik, 1992
Diet: A health determining factor – Volume 3

This third volume focuses on the results of the “nutrition” component of the survey conducted in 1992 in Nunavik. The data makes it possible to assess, among the Inuit, food consumption according to food groups and energy and nutrient intakes. It also examines how traditional foods and foods imported from southern Québec contribute to nutrient intake.

The target population of the survey comprises all persons living permanently in Inuit private households and residing in the Nunavik region. The “nutrition” component was conducted with a sub-sample of persons aged 18 to 74, which included 433 persons for the 24-hour dietary recall and 228 women for the food consumption frequency questionnaire.
