About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who have a high level of oppositional behaviours. Students are given a 'total oppositional behaviour score' based on their responses to 7 individual questions, and a cutoff is used to identify students with a high level of oppositional behaviour.

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

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 4 of the following 7 questionnaire items: I cut classes or skip school, 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 7 items are: 1. definitely not like me, 2., 3., 4., 5. and 6. definitely like me.
