ROOMING HOUSES 2017: Highlights of a study by Direction régionale de santé publique de Montréal and Direction de l’habitation de la Ville de Montréal
The investigation was conducted in summer 2017 and focused on rooming house residents in five central boroughs of the Ville de Montréal: Côte‑des‑Neiges–Notre‐Dame‐de‐Grâce, Le Sud‐Ouest, Ville‐Marie, Rosemont–La Petite‑Patrie and Mercier–Hochelaga‑Maisonneuve. Of the 125 rooming houses listed in these areas, 52 or them were selected at random to form the participant sample. In total, 274 roomers answered a questionnaire on their housing conditions, health condition and residential background. The response rate was 75% (274/364).
