Analysis Plan TitleExploring factors associated with lifestyle behavior changes during the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada
Analysis Plan DescriptionObjective 1: To identify the characteristics of individuals who reported improvement/degradation/no change in their lifestyle behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. Objective 2: To identify variations in the reporting of changes in lifestyle behaviors during the pandemic of COVID-19. Methods: We will use data from the representative Leger surveys 1 to 6. Information on perceived changes in lifestyle behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic will be divided into three categories: 1) improvement, 2) deterioration, 3) no change/no prior adoption. We will then examine diet, physical activity, alcohol intake, tobacco intake and recreational drug intake, alone or in combination using a cumulative score to characterize the direction of changes. Associations with the following variables will be examined: geographical factors, demographic factors, socio-economic factors), health status and variables pertaining to the pandemic (government recommendations; concerns and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on occupation, income, financial challenges, physical/financial access to food, bodyweight). Statistical analyses: For each survey, descriptive statistics will be calculated to depict lifestyle behavior changes categories. Differences in the characteristics of respondents will be then examined using ANOVA and Fisher exact test / Chi-square test. Finally, we plan on depicting longitudinal trends in changes of lifestyle behaviors using graphical tools and descriptive statistics.
