Jamaica Health & Lifestyle Data

Abstract

The Jamaica Health and Lifestyle Survey 2001 interviewed a representative sample of 2012 community-based adults aged 15 to 74 years old between 2000 and 2001, 680 males and 1332 females. The cluster sampling technique based on probability proportionate to size was used to select participants from households within 62 enumeration districts. The main purpose of the study was to determine current dietary intakes, lifestyle and behaviour patterns that have an impact on the occurrence and control of chronic diseases in Jamaica in the 15 – 74 year old age group and to define the pattern of diabetes mellitus, obesity and hypertension and their risk factors, in the Jamaican population from a national sample. The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) was consulted on the sample design.

Cluster sampling was used to recruit a nationally representative sample of 2012 persons within the 15 – 74 year age group. In response to items on an interviewer-administered questionnaire, participants in the study provided demographic data as well as data on anthropometry and biomedical measures, medical, social and family history. Anthropometric measurements obtained were height, weight, hip circumference and waist circumference.

Sampling Procedure
The Statistical Institute of Jamaica provided a listing of 478 enumeration districts (EDs) used as the sampling frame for enumeration districts selected and used during other national surveys such as the Labour Force Survey.  These EDs were the primary sampling units (PSUs) or clusters selected at the first sampling stage of the survey.  A national sample of 2000 would provide sufficient power for the study. A sample of 36 persons per ED was believed to provide reliable estimates of within and between cluster variability. This resulted in use of approximately 56 ED’s to yield a sample of 2016 subjects. The Systematic Random Sampling method was used to draw the ED’s required to become the Primary Sampling Unit (PSU). A sampling fraction of 56/478 was used to select ED’s in each parish. Thus, larger parishes had larger numbers of ED’s.  A single eligible individual from within each household in each PSU was selected as study participant to yield a sample of 2012 persons.

Response Rates
Homes were visited multiple times to increase the chances of finding eligible participants.  If after 3 visits no eligible participant was found or the eligible participant refused participation, the next household was targeted. The recruited respondents represented a 87.6% response rate.

Overview
The survey instrument used contained pre-coded questions.
Questionnaires were interviewer-administered.

Dates of Data Collection
1993-01-06 - 2006-02-28

Time Periods
2000-01-09 to 2001-12-01

Mode of Data Collection
Interviewer Administered Questionnaire
Stadiometers, scales and measuring tapes
Portable GCT Accutrend devices

Notes on Data Collection
Interviewer-administered questionnaires provided data on personal, family and medical history.  Weights of participants were obtained using electronic scales, while height was obtained using stadiometers. Measuring tapes were used to obtain waist and hip circumference.   Portable GCT Accutrend  machines were used to obtain finger-prick blood samples for  estimation of fasting blood glucose and total cholesterol levels.

Data Collectors
Health care staff (mainly nurses, nutritionists and dieticians) from Jamaica’s regional health authorities.

Data Editing
Data were checked to ensure that incorrectly coded responses were corrected.

Other Processing
Data entry using Access database produced the initial data sets.
