Scottish House Condition Survey Key Findings 2007

DescriptionThis is the fourth Key Findings report to be produced since the SHCS moved to a continuous format in 2003. Prior to 2003 surveys were conducted in 1991, 1996 and 2002 and typically consisted of sample sizes of around 15,000 paired social and physical cases. The 2003/4, 2004/5, 2005/6 and, now, 2007 surveys have a sample size of around 3,000 paired cases.
