National Housing Federation (NHF) Overcrowding Study

Survey of 102 adults living with children in overcrowded homes

  • Around one in five (18%) adults who live with children in overcrowded homes say they or their partner have to sleep in the living room, hallway or kitchen quite often because the bedrooms in their home are full
  • Two in five (41%) say it is difficult for the children in their home to do their homework because of lack of space. One in seven (14%) say it is not possible
  • Nearly half (45%) say their family argues a lot because their home is crowded
