Alberta had the worst results, with 35% of respondents feeling uncomfortable and 29% feeling miserable when it comes to housing. 

For the country as a whole, 36% of respondents feel uncomfortable while 24% feel miserable. 

Angus Reid also broke down the demographics for the "miserable" part of the population and found that they are young people most likely to have lower income, that 42% are renters, and that, while most of them want to get into the market, they reportedly can't afford it.
