In the first year of each two-year cycle, the survey covers approximately 130,000 Canadians and is designed to provide valid information for each of 136 health regions. In the second year of the cycle, provincial-level surveys are undertaken (n=~30,000). The survey covers household residents 12 years of age and over. HUI3 is included in the survey. The first output is scheduled for release in 2002.
