Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have needed to see or talk to a health professional about their mental or emotional health, or about the use of alcohol or drugs in the last 12 months and who didn’t . 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: In the last 12 months, why didn’t you see or talk to a doctor, nurse or other health professional about your mental or emotional health, or about the use of alcohol or drugs: 1) Services were not available in my area

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.
