About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens who reported a dexterity disability [among those who reported being limited sometimes or often in the kinds or amount of activity they can do at home, work or otherwise because of a physical or mental condition, or a health problem].

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have reported being limited . 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: What type of limitation or disability do you often or sometimes experience: e) Dexterity

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.
