First Nations regional longitudinal health survey  
http://www.rhs-ers.ca/

This national survey is conducted and controlled by First Nations for First Nations as a means of improving health and living conditions. The RHS provides information on the health practices, beliefs and knowledge, perceptions, and past histories of First Nations peoples, including 28 different health conditions. The data collected will help First Nations to learn about their communities in terms of health status, management of health and well-being of the community, and assist in the promotion of healthy lifestyles and practices at community, regional, and national levels. The RHS complies with the National Aboriginal Health Organization’s OCAP (ownership, control, access, and possession) principals, meaning that First Nations control data collection and affiliated processes.
