2011 Public Service Employee Survey Organizational Results: Patented Medicine Prices Review Board Canada

A sub-unit of:
  • Small organizations have been grouped into one collection unit
    • Patented Medicine Prices Review Board Canada

The results of the 2011 Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) are presented in numerical order, grouped by section headings as they appeared in the questionnaire.

Note: Due to rounding, percentages may not add to 100. The results from the 2011 and 2008 PSES are presented in the tables below as percentages for each response category, as well as average scores for questions employing a five-point response scale. The average score assigns different weights to each of the five response categories: the more positive the response, the higher the score.

  • The Average Score (1-5) is a weighted score, whereby the most positive response category (example: strongly agree) is assigned a score of 5, 4 is assigned to the next most positive response option, 3 to the middle response option, 2 to the second most negative response category and 1 to the most negative response category (example: strongly disagree)
  • The Average Score (1-100) was calculated by assigning a score of 100 to the most positive response category, 75 to the second most positive response category, 50 for the middle response category, 25 to the second most negative response option, and 0 to the most negative response option.

Discrimination

Discrimination means to treat someone differently or unfairly because of a personal characteristic or distinction which, whether intentional or not, has an effect which imposes disadvantages not imposed upon others or which withholds or limits access to other members of society. There are eleven prohibited grounds under the Canadian Human Rights Act: race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, mental or physical disability and pardoned conviction.

Question 66. After having read the definition of discrimination, in the past two years, have you been the victim of discrimination on the job?
