About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 4 and 5 who report being very physically active for at least 60 minutes per day over the last 7 days.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Elementary Student Wellness Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "7 days" by the number of respondents who answered "none, 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 4 days, 5 days, 6 days or 7 days" to the question "Being very physically active means doing activities that make you breathe hard and sweat, such as running, biking, playing sports, skating, dancing, swimming, etc. Last week, on how many days were you very physically active for a total of 60 minutes (1 hour: it can be done at 5-10 minutes at one time, or all at once)?".

Notes

The 2019-2020 edition of this survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the number of schools that participated 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, 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.
