This paper outlines key findings of a pilot study. The primary objective of the study was to test an instrument on health and social exclusion. A secondary objective was to invite perceptions of health and social exclusion during the testing of the instrument. A sample of 150 single mothers aged 18-59 were randomly selected from the total population (1022) of single mothers who had or were in receipt of government social assistance and who resided in an urban centre in Saskatchewan, Canada. The participants were sent invitations to participate in a focus group. Descriptive, as well as qualitative data is presented. The study outcome demonstrated the potential utility of the test instrument.
