Abstract
Objectives: This paper focuses on the primary housing challenges experienced by homeless men in the northern urban settlements of Inuvik and Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and how these challenges can create pathways to homelessness in these two communities. Study design: This is community-based research project is rooted in a housing insecurity approach to explore the geographies of northern homelessness. Methods: Biographical interviews were conducted with 45 men living in emergency shelters in the two study communities. Results: Primary housing challenges experienced by interview participants result largely from a heavy reliance on private rental housing. Conclusions: There are three main ways in which the current housing system serves to marginalize men at risk of homelessness. First, rental housing monopolies in Inuvik and Yellowknife exacerbate the lack of affordable housing and inaccessibility. Second, government housing stock is simply not equipped for the diverse urban population of the North. Third, both the private and government housing stocks do not accommodate the particular needs or realities of those in the interview participant population.

Abstract
BACKGROUND: This article outlines a program of applied research and development known as Housing for Health that, over the period 1999-2012, targeted health-related improvements in housing for Indigenous householders in communities across regional and remote Australia. In essence, the program focuses on measuring the functionality of key appliances and structures (we term this "health hardware") against clear criteria and ensuring identified faults are fixed. METHODS: Detailed survey and assessment of all aspects of housing was undertaken, particularly focusing on the function of health hardware. All results were entered into a database and analyzed. RESULTS: The results demonstrate extremely poor initial performance of the health hardware. A key finding is that attention to maintenance of existing houses can be a cost-effective means of improving health outcomes and also suggests the need to superintend the health-conferring qualities of new infrastructure. We briefly outline the early foundations of the Housing for Health program, major findings from data gathered before and after improvements to household amenities, and our efforts to translate these findings into broader policy. CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate that simply injecting funds into housing construction is not sufficient for gaining maximum health benefit.

Abstract
The Building and Housing Register (BBR) provides opportunity to carry out research on individuals' housing condition over time. The register was established in 1977.
The main variables in the register are high-quality variables and it is possible to match key entry variable and CPR-number identifying individuals.
There has been made alterations of definitions of some of the key variables and there is a data break in 2005. From 1994, data make longitudinal analyses possible.
Analyses based on data from BBR are valid and may provide knowledge about individual housing paths over time.

Abstract
This paper gives a faunistic review of mites that have been recorded in the indoor environment, particularly homes, barns, and stored products, in Norway and the other Scandinavian countries. Some preliminary results are given from unpublished investigations in Norway. Seven species of pyroglyphid mites have been recorded: Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, D. microceras, D. farinae, D. evansi, Euroglyphus maynei, Gymnoglyphus longior, and Hirstia chelidonis. D. pteronyssinus was the predominant species, followed by D. microceras in Scandinavia and D. farinae in Denmark. D. evansi was detected in poultry houses in Norway. Lepidoglyphus destructor was the predominant species in barn dust, but large populations of Acarus, Tyrophagus, Tydeus, and Tarsonemidae also occurred. In humid homes, Glycyphagus domesticus was found in high numbers. The result of quantification of mites depends on the method for examination of dust. When one proposes limits for the concentration of mites in relation to risk of allergic sensitization and provocation of symptoms, reference should be made to a well-described method for sampling and analyzing dust. The number of mites should be given per area, not only per weight unit of dust. The number of mites per area indicates the number of mites in the home. The number of mites per weight unit of dust describes the concentration of mites in the vacuum cleaner.
