The ability to afford stable and adequate housing can significantly impact a family’s well-being. Adequate housing protects families from harmful exposures and provides them with a sense of privacy, security, and stability. Poor-quality housing contributes to health problems such as infectious and chronic diseases, as well as mental health problems, such as anxiety, stress, and low self-esteem. Moreover, inadequate housing can reduce children’s ability to do homework, can lead to conflict among family members, and can inhibit overall childhood development.[i] This indicator is the percent of households with at least one of four housing problems: overcrowding, high housing costs, lack of kitchen or plumbing facilities.
