About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 4 and 5 who have a high level of oppositional behaviour. Students are given a 'total oppositional behaviour score' based on their responses to 6 individual questions, and a cutoff is used to identify students with a high level of oppositional behaviour.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Elementary Student Wellness Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who have a total oppositional behaviour score higher than a specified cutoff by the number of respondents who described their feelings and ideas for at least 3 of the following 6 questionnaire items: 'I make other people do what I want', 'I disobey my parents', 'I talk back to my teachers', 'I get into fights', 'I often say mean things to people to get what I want' and 'I take things that are not mine from home, school, or elsewhere'. The response options for these 6 items are not like me, a little like me and a lot like me.

Notes

The 2019-2020 edition of this survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the number of schools that participated in 2019-2020 is much lower than other editions of the survey, results at the provincial level were deemed not representative of the total student population. Therefore, survey results for New Brunswick, health zones and demographic groups are not available for the 2019-2020 edition. However, 2019-2020 results are available for communities in which the number of participating schools was deemed sufficient to be representative of the student population in that community.
