In this cross-disciplinary research David Ormandy and expert contributors explain the nature and development of the World Health Organization's study of housing across Europe. In-depth analysis provides new evidence of links between the health of inhabitants and their housing conditions, with focus on critical topics such as:

  • indoor air pollution
  • the effect of cold homes and dampness
  • noise effects
  • domestic accidents.

With practical examples of survey tools, the attention given to methodological approaches makes this text an important resource for policy professionals as well as housing, planning and public health academics.
