Public views of space in the home
A key element of decent housing is that it should be large enough for the household. A range of different standards for defining overcrowding and space requirements in the home are in use in Britain today, but the underlying assumptions are rarely validated against public views. This research suggests that the standards fall well below public expectations, particularly for some household types. As a result, official estimates are likely to be underestimating the scale of the problem with overcrowding.
