Source

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

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who rode a bicycle in the last 12 months. This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "always" by the number of respondents who answered "never, sometimes, most of the time or always" to the question: During the past 12 months, how often did you wear a helmet when you rode a bicycle?
