About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report being injured and having to be treated by a doctor or nurse during the past 12 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

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: Many young people get hurt or injured from activities such as playing sports or fighting with others at different places such as the street or home. Injuries can include being poisoned or burned. Injuries do not include illnesses such as measles or the flu. During the past 12 months, have you been injured and had to be treated by a doctor or nurse?
