The universe of households tested for core housing need includes only private non-farm, non-band, non-reserve households with incomes greater than zero and shelter cost-to-income ratios (STIRs) less than 100%. ... The 2006 Census identified 12.4 million households in Canada, of which 11.8 million were private non-farm, non-band households reporting positive incomes and with STIRs of less than 100%. Among the 11.8 million such households, 3.1 million were one-person households. This Research Highlight examines the housing conditions of these one-person households"--
