About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades K to 5 who are physically active with a parent 3 or more times per week. Survey responses are provided by the parent.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Elementary Student Wellness Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "often (3-5 times weekly) or very often (daily)" by the number of respondents who answered "never, rarely (less than 1 time weekly), sometimes (1-2 times weekly), often (3-5 times weekly), or very often (daily)" to the question: How often are you physically active with your child, playing active games, sports or physical activities?

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.
