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.

As a result, official estimates are likely to be underestimating the scale of the problem with overcrowding.
