Indicators of

Tenure security & housing conditions

Adequate housing conditions and tenure security (including that of land when relevant) are essential to an adequate standard of living. The indicators on tenure security include actual tenure (type of tenure and experiences of evictions) and perceived tenure security (in the form of fear of eviction). Adequate housing conditions include basic access to drinking water and sanitation facilities (see indicators on access to services); sufficient-living area; durable housing; and security of tenure.

These indicators can be collected at the household level, though tenure security might need to be assessed at the individual level in cases where access and property rights to housing and land require a gender analysis.
