GTA West housing and health study: NH18-23/2016-7E-PDF

report on establishing the baseline characteristics of the participants.

"CMHC is interested in understanding and documenting the benefits of affordable housing. In December 2006, CMHC funded a pilot study for the evaluation of social housing as a health intervention. This pilot study laid the groundwork for the longitudinal study described in this Research Highlight, which was also funded in part by CMHC. The study is expected to run through March 2019. This Research Highlight provides a snapshot of the socio-demographic, health, social support and other characteristics of the participants enrolled in the GTA West Study at the time of their baseline interview. Relatively little is known about the characteristics of social housing applicants, so the data presented here offers a unique insight into the characteristics of an important social group"--Introd., p. [1].
