Analysis Plan TitleComparing impacts and concerns among young Canadians with cancer, chronic health conditions, and healthy individuals
Analysis Plan DescriptionThe aim of this study is to analyze data from a representative Canadian sample (Leger) and investigate if there exist differences in COVID-19 related concerns, and psychosocial functioning impact between young people with cancer, young people with other chronic health conditions, and healthy individuals. Differences in psychosocial impact were summarized descriptively between the three groups, and again using χ2 for bivariate comparisons between cancer and the remaining 2 groups (chronic/healthy). A series of binary and ordinal logistic regressions will be run to assess the associations between COVID-19 related concerns (dependent variable, concern/no concern), or feelings of anxiety, depression, and loneliness, respectively (dependent variables with three levels: greatly/somewhat/not at all) and the health status (independent variable with 3 levels: cancer, chronic health condition, healthy). Lowest level of impact, no concern, and healthy will be used as reference categories. Models will include age, gender, a diagnosis of mental health (yes/no), medical insurance (yes/no), and wave of survey as covariates. Any post hoc analyses may be specified additionally.
