About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [having seen a specialist] and give a favourable rating of 8, 9 or 10 for services received from a specialist in the last 12 months [scale 0-10].

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have seen a specialist in the last 12 months . 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: Thinking of the specialist you saw most recently in the last 12 months and using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst health care possible and 10 is the best health care possible, what number would you use to rate the health care service you received from the specialist in the last 12 months?

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.
