Average living space per occupant

This indicator provides information on the average living space per occupant and therefore provides an insight into the comfort and housing conditions in terms of space.

From an integration perspective, the aim is to reduce the differences in terms of average living space per occupant between the different households.  


The average living space per occupant is the total square metres of living space divided by total occupants in occupied dwellings.
