This chart reflects responses to Question #29a from the Winter 2020 survey, which asked, “If yes to 29, has COVID-19 changed the way your house divides or pays for utility bills?” The options available were,
Yes, because of COVID-19;
Yes, because it has changed because of something unrelated to COVID-19;
No, nothing has changed;
I don’t know.
Eighty-two respondents answered this question. Thirty-one respondents (37.8%) said they had changed the way their house divides or pays for utility bills because of COVID-19. One (1.2%) respondent said it has changed because of something other than COVID-19. Forty-six (56.1%) said nothing has changed because of COVID-19. One respondent (1.2%) said they didn’t know. Three respondents (3.7%) said “other”.
