Housing conditions related to Inuit children's health: report

 


A family's lower satisfaction rate in living conditions and lack of home ownership are related to poor physical and mental health in Inuit children, according to a new Statistics Canada report.

The report compared the health of 1,233 Inuit children age two to five to physical housing characteristics like overcrowding, a parent's reported satisfaction with their housing and home ownership.

‚ÄčIt was the first study of its kind to use a population-based sample of children under six years old to look at various aspects of housing and children's health outcomes.
