«This theme paper begins by presenting a description of the survey sample and goes on to consider the Inuit’s mode of living, including factors such as household composition, adoption and marital status. It then adresses topics related to economic status: education, individual income, occupation and job status. In addition, the subject of personal perceptions of one’s own health status is also included in the last section of the paper.» (p. 2) The survey results show that «[s]ingle parent families constitute 30% of Inuit households compared to 9% in the province [...]. On the other hand, Nunavik has fewer households with people living alone or with a spouse and no children; non family households with other people as joint tenants does not exist among the Inuit.» (p. 4)
