About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens who reported usually sleeping for 7 hours or more each night.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "
7 hours to less than 8 hours, 8 hours to less than 9 hours or 9 hours or more" by the number of respondents who answered "under 2 hours, 2 hours to less than 3 hours, 3 hours to less than 4 hours, 4 hours to less than 5 hours, 5 hours to less than 6 hours, 6 hours to less than 7 hours, 7 hours to less than 8 hours, 8 hours to less than 9 hours or 9 hours or more" to the question: How long do you usually spend sleeping each night?

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.
