It has since been moved from a 'bricks and mortar' issue to one of health and welfare, now being an office within the Department of Human Services. Starting in the East End and supported by a small team of researchers, Booth spent his weekends and spare time speaking to the working poor. In addition to this, the way that an individual responds to stress can influence their health status. Poor indoor air quality, lead paint, and other hazards often coexist in homes, placing children and families at great risk for multiple health problems.

How Does Housing Affect Health?

Often, individuals responding to chronic stress will develop potentially positive or negative coping behaviors. Deprivation associated with poor-quality neighbourhoods, schools, and housing sets children off on paths that are not conducive to health and well-being.

It has since been moved from a 'bricks and mortar' issue to one of health and welfare, now being an office within the Department of Human Services. In both the developing and developed world, particularly against the backdrop of the current global economic downturn, measuring social progress is just as relevant and important as it was when Booth and his team pursued it in east London. Does a country have the infrastructure and the instruments to allow its citizens and communities to improve their quality of life?
