About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services who reported that they have been diagnosed or treated for heart disease.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "yes" by the number of respondents who answered "yes or no" to the question: Has a doctor or any other health professional ever diagnosed you with or treated you for any of the following chronic health conditions? Please select all that apply: arthritis, asthma, emphysema or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), chronic pain, cancer, diabetes, depression, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure or hypertension, a mood disorder other than depression, such as bipolar disorder, mania, manic depression or dysthymia, gastric reflux (or GERD), alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, anxiety or high cholesterol.

Notes

The 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, users are advised to use the survey data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other editions of the survey.
