About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [among those who do not have a family doctor or a nurse practitioner] who said their family doctor or nurse practitioner left, retired or passed away.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who do not have a family doctor or a nurse practitioner . 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: Why do you not have a personal family doctor or a nurse practitioner: 2) Had a family doctor or Nurse Practitioner who left, retired or passed away

Notes

The 2020 edition of the Primary Health Survey (PHS) was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, NBHC had to assess the impact of surveying during the pandemic. Accordingly, advanced statistical analyses were performed to allow for comparison between the results obtained in 2020 and those obtained in previous PHS cycles. Despite these analyses, users are advised to use the PHS 2020 data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other PHS editions.
