About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [who have seen or talked to a health professional about their mental or emotional health, or about the use of alcohol or drugs] and give a favourable rating of 8, 9 or 10 about the services received for their mental or emotional health, or about the use of alcohol or drugs in the last 12 months [scale 0-10].

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have seen or talked to a health professional about their mental or emotional health, or about the use of alcohol or drugs . This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "8, 9 or 10" by the number of respondents who answered "0 to 10" to the question: Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst service possible and 10 is the best service possible, what number would you use to rate the service you received about your mental or emotional health or your use of alcohol or drugs?

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.
