Abstract

APMS 2007 included a structured clinical assessment of mental health that allowed for the reliable diagnosis of common mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. The questionnaire also covered aspects of housing conditions and financial strain related to domestic fuel use, including presence of mould, cutting back on fuel usage, lack of central heating and double-glazing, being cold at home, and fuel-related problem debt or utility disconnection. This report presents the prevalence of different aspects of poor housing in the English population and identifies which types of household are at greatest risk. It also explores how poor housing conditions and fuel related debt relate to other indicators of poverty, and goes on to examine associations with mental and physical health and disability.
