About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from a home support worker who reported that it was very easy or somewhat easy to fill out all the necessary paperwork before they started receiving services.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "somewhat easy or very easy" by the number of respondents who answered "very difficult, somewhat difficult, somewhat easy, very easy" to the question: When you first started getting home care services, how easy or difficult was it to fill out all the necessary paperwork?

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.
