About

This indicator is the arithmetic mean of the average number of visits with their family doctor [among those who have a family doctor] in the last 12 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by doing the "sum of the values provided by the respondents" divided by "the total number of respondents" to the question: In the last 12 months, how many times did you see the following professionals for a reason that had to do with your own health? (personal family doctor)

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.
