Population and Housing

Welcome to class Darlings!



Population is the total number of people living in a particular area. The size of the population of a community and particularly the number of families in the community, determines the demand for housing. More people and more families mean more houses for them to live on.

  • Many people are poor
  • Building materials are too expensive
  • People cannot easily obtain loans.
  • The cost of land is too high

Solutions to Housing Shortage

  • The cost of building should be reduced
  • Housing loans should be given to workers
  • People should buy land in rural areas where it is cheaper
  • Government should build affordable houses and sell to people at the local government level.
