[...] In April and May, 2010, the Yukon Bureau of Statistics and the Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition distributed the housing adequacy questionnaire in Whitehorse. [...] Men and women were equally likely to fill out the questionnaire, and more than a quarter of the respondents had children living in their households.
