The study revealed that although Canadians aged 18-64 continue to put
on weight; the pace at which they are gaining has slowed down.
The report was based on data from the National Population Health
Survey, a longitudinal survey that has followed the same group of
people every two years, on six separate occasions, between 1994/1995
and 2004/2005. Data for height and weight was self-reported.
