Analysis Plan TitleImpacts of COVID-19 on Canadians with Chronic Diseases
Analysis Plan DescriptionThis project aims to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians living with chronic diseases. The data from the Canadian Leger Survey (Wave 2, 3, 4 and 5) will be used in order to understand impacts among individuals with no chronic condition vs with chronic condition. Outcome of interest include a series of questions from the iCARE impacts model (focusing on the questions concerning the mental health, access to care and health behavior impacts). The participants will be categorized within two groups : with chronic diseases and without chronic disease. The sex will be used as a stratification variable. Changes over time will be evaluated as well. The demographic information of both groups will be compared using descriptives statistics like mean and proportion. In order to assess the differences in the impacts of COVID-19 in the population with chronic diseases and the general population, a general logistic regression model analysis with independent group will be made. All statistical tests will be two-sided (p < 0.05 will be considered significant).
With this analysis plan, I will be able to answer the following questions : 1) Are people with chronic disease more impacted and what are the nature of the impacts of COVID-19 ? 2) Are men more impacted by COVID-19 than women ? 3) Are men with chronic disease more impacted than women with chronic disease ?
