About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from a home support worker who reported that they always received their services in the language (English or French) of their choice in the last 2 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "always" by the number of respondents who answered "never, sometimes, usually or always" to the question: In the last 2 months, how often did you receive home support services you needed in the language (English or French) of your choice?

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.
