About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from a home support worker who reported that the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on their mental or emotional health.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "major negative impact or minor negative impact" by the number of respondents who answered "major negative impact, minor negative impact, no impact, minor positive impact or major positive impact" to the question: Which of the following best describes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your mental or emotional health?

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.
