Housing Space Change in England – Briefing Paper
In the latest of our series of Queen's Policy Engagement Briefing Papers, Professor Christopher Lloyd and James Gleeson from the Greater London Authority look at changes in housing space in small areas within England between 1971 and 2017.
This research into housing space change in England is the first of its kind, delving deeper into how overcrowding and housing space have changed at neighbourhood level over four decades. Working with James Gleeson from the Greater London Authority, Professor Lloyd has studied Census data as well as administrative data to explore the scale of the housing problem. Previous research has focused solely on local authority levels rather than small areas of England.
This briefing paper focuses on three measures of housing space:
1. Dwellings per person: total dwellings/total persons (including non-household residents)
2. Overcrowding: percentage of households with more than 1 person per room
3. Rooms per person: total rooms/total persons
