About

This indicator is the percentage of men who reported having had 5 or more drinks on one occasion at least once per month in the past 12 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who are men . This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "once a month, 2 to 3 times a month, once a week, 2 to 5 times a week, daily or almost daily" by the number of respondents who answered "I have never done this, I did not have 5 (for men)/4 (for women) or more drinks on one occasion in the last 12 months, less than once a month, once a month, 2 to 3 times a month, once a week, 2 to 5 times a week or daily or almost daily" to the question: How often in the past 12 months have you had, 4 for women and 5 for men, or more drinks on one occasion?

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.
