A report examined the housing conditions of minority-ethnic households in England. It said that, in 2010, around 15 per cent of minority-ethnic households lived in a home with at least one Category 1 Housing Health and Safety Rating System hazard. This varied according to tenure: 18 per cent of minority-ethnic private sector households lived with a serious health and safety hazard, compared with 8 per cent of those who lived in the public sector. The report noted the existence of overcrowding, and the impact of poor housing conditions for longer-term health.
