About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens who reported that their own emotional or mental health problem or condition contributes a lot to feelings of stress in the last 12 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

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: Thinking about stress in your day-to-day life within the last 12 months, please tell me if the following things have contributed a lot to feelings of stress you may have: c) Your own emotional or mental health problem or condition

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.
