About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens with one (1) or more chronic health conditions (among a list of 12 conditions) who are very confident in managing their health condition.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey and Primary Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have one (1) or more of the following chronic health conditions: arthritis, asthma, chronic pain, Emphysema or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), cancer, diabetes, depression, A mood disorder other than depression, such as bipolar disorder, mania, manic depression, or dysthymia, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure or hypertension or gastric reflux (GERD). This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "very confident" by the number of respondents who answered "not at all confident, not very confident, confident or very confident" to the question: How confident are you that you can control and manage your health condition? By control and manage your health problems, we mean knowing what to do to control symptoms, prevent flare-ups, or monitor your condition.

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.
