About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grade 6 to 12 who have their need for autonomy highly satisfied. Students are given a 'total autonomy score' based on their responses to 6 individual questions about mental fitness, and a cutoff is used to identify students with a high score.

Source

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

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who have a total autonomy 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 feel free to express myself at home, I feel free to express myself with my friends, I feel I have a choice about when and how to do my schoolwork, I feel I have a choice about which activities to do with my friends, I feel free to express myself at school and I feel like I have a choice about when and how to do my household chores. The response options for these 6 items are: really false for me, sort of false for me, sort of true for me and really true for me.
