Edmonton Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by Edmonton Community Foundation, in partnership with Edmonton Social Planning Council, to measure how the community is doing. This year we will also be focusing on individual issues, VITAL TOPICS, that are timely and important to Edmonton. Watch for these in each issue of Legacy in Action, and in the full issue of Vital Signs that will be released in October of this year.

This edition focuses on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.

LIMITATIONS IN RESEARCH: It is important to note that statistics and data are mostly compiled in binary categories (male or female). Similarly, often it is assumed that there are gay or straight couples only. Sources for these statistics are available at ecfoundation.org
