1. Data collection in Nunavut resulted in undercoverage of the Inuit population and lower response rates than those in Yukon and the Northwest Territories. As such, results for Nunavut should be interpreted with caution.
2. Based on responses of people who engaged in these activities.
3. Based on responses of people who were home alone in the evening or night.
Note: Totals may not add to 100% due to rounding and "Don't know" and "Not stated" responses, which were included in the calculations but not shown in table.
