Nutrition Surveillance Data Tool from Health Canada
The Nutrition Surveillance Data Tool was developed by the Bureau of Food Surveillance and Science Integration (BFSSI) at Health Canada. This tool presents usual intakes of energy, nutrients and other dietary components using data collected in the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey – Nutrition. It highlights where Canadians’ intakes fall relative to Dietary Reference Intakes established by the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine.
About the Data Tool
The Nutrition Surveillance Data Tool presents usual intakes of energy, nutrients and other dietary components using data collected in the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey – Nutrition (CCHS – Nutrition). The goal is to complement the full usual intake dataset published on the Government of Canada’s Open Data portal by presenting key data in an interactive and user-friendly way.
This data tool enables users to look at the 2015 CCHS – Nutrition usual intake data in three ways.
