The relation between quality of dwelling, socio-economic status and health in EU28 and its Member States


This study focuses on two main research objectives. The first objective identifies the links between different types of buildings and the socio-economic characteristics of their dwellers to conclude which part of Europe’s population should renovate their buildings most urgently for the benefit of their health. The second research objective is to find out which technical aspects need to be included in a comprehensive building strategy for the proper order of measures. These measures should not just be derived from the energetic quality of the buildings but also from the people’s vulnerability linked to specific buildings clusters.
