About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens who reported having a somewhat strong or very strong sense of belonging to their local community.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "somewhat strong or very strong" by the number of respondents who answered "very weak, somewhat weak, somewhat strong or very strong" to the question: How would you describe your sense of belonging to your local community? Would you say it is...?

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.
