About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from the Extra-Mural Program who reported that they needed services in the last 2 months but there were limits, reductions or cancelled visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

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: In the last 2 months, have you needed Extra-Mural services but there were limits, reductions or cancelled visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic?

Notes

The 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, users are advised to use the survey data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other editions of the survey.
