Charting the state of housing across the EU

The prevalence of structural problems in dwellings in the EU varies considerably between Member States.

On average, 12% of EU residents report damp or leaks in their walls and roofs; 9% live in accommodation with rot in the windows, doors or floors; and 14% of resident indicate that they cannot afford to keep their home adequately warm.

Such problems are most common in Cyprus, where 51% of dwellings have a structural deficiency, and least common in Austria and Sweden, where 92% of residents reported having no structural problems in their dwellings.
