About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [with a nurse practitioner as their primary care provider] who visited their nurse practitioner 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 "one time or more" by the number of respondents who answered "zero or more than zero" 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? (nurse practitioner)

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.
