Issue: Liveability of human settlements - Housing quality
This is an issue under the Human settlements theme of the Data Reporting System.
Liveability can be defined as the degree to which a human settlement provides a safe, inclusive and environmentally benign basis for the social and economic life of all its citizens. As the places where the majority of humans live, the liveability of human settlements is important in determining both the quality of life of the residents and the economic competitiveness of the settlement. Housing is the most intimate aspect of the physical environment in which humans have to live. Housing quality is therefore a critical aspect of liveability.
- HS-25 Condition of dwellings
The liveability of a settlement will be determined by the quality of the housing available to its residents. The condition of dwellings, measured as percentage of houses requiring repairs, is an indicator of housing quality.
