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. Responses of "Don't know" and "Not stated" were included in the calculation of percentages.
Notes: Totals may not add up 100% due to rounding.
