Housing

Housing conditions and the quality of the local environment play a large role in quality of life. Health and well-being can be affected by poor housing conditions such as damp or overcrowding and also by factors related to the local area, for example levels of deprivation, access to services, contact with neighbours or the fear of crime.

Good quality homes and local surroundings are important factors in ensuring a safe and healthy environment. Many of the data sources held by the UK Data Service contain information on these topics.
