About this Table

Health Outcomes are influenced by many factors that influence health, such as the quality of the medical care received to having access to affordable housing. 

Content and description

Information on quality and length of life. 

Quality of life, or how healthy people feel, is a blend of a person’s physical, mental, emotional and social functioning. It goes beyond measuring the life expectancy and causes of death.  It is available by different age groups in this data table. 
Length of life is about life expectancy and median age at death. It is influenced by premature death, potentially avoidable death from preventable causes, potentially avoidable death from treatable causes.

Why is this important?

Health Outcomes indicators represent how healthy are individuals in a community.  The indicators reflect the physical and mental well-being of these New Brunswickers. 

Having the ability to access local population health information relating to children, youth, adults and seniors for a specific community is important to support planning and targeted strategies. Knowledge of the Physical Environment, Health Behaviours, Social and Economic Factor and Health Services can be a powerful tool in improving Health Outcomes.
