Residential Satisfaction of Elderly Tenants in Apartment Housing  

Microsoft Academic Search

Previous research has demonstrated the persistently lower residential satisfaction of tenants as compared to homeowners. However,\\u000a analysis of data from 41,198 US households indicates that this gap is heavily age dependent. After middle age, the residential\\u000a satisfaction of apartment housing tenants increases dramatically—eventually exceeding that of both single-family housing tenants\\u000a and homeowners. Although elderly tenants are less likely to indicate

Victimization and Fear of Crime in Elderly Public Housing Tenants.  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Fear of crime was central in determining psychological well-being. Crime-related variables were minimally related to size of social space and activity outside the housing site. Planned housing serves a protective function and tenants are not necessarily made prisoners in their homes by crime or fear. (Author)

The management experiences of all Local Housing Authorities (LHAs) in Connecticut were investigated concerning younger disabled tenants in state-subsidized elderly housing. While as a group younger disabled tenants were more likely to violate the terms of their lease, including disrupting other tenants' enjoyment of their homes, management problems with younger disabled tenants were not reported by all LHAs.

Tenant Net  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Written in an irreverent yet informative style, the Tenant Net provides information for tenants (with a particular focus on New York City), such as tenant-landlord agreements, zoning law, and rent-increase agreements. The site also sponsors several online forums, where visitors can ask questions about eviction notices, eminent domain, and other policies that affect the lives of those who rent their housing units. Other sections contain information on heating requirements, how to tell if an eviction is illegal, noisy neighbors, and a history of the tenant movement in New York City from 1904 to 1984. Several full-length books are also available on the site, including Jacob Riis's muckraking expose How the Other Half Lives and Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book. In addition, there is also material on tenant rights and agreements throughout the United States, Australia, and Canada.

The responsible tenant: housing governance and the politics of behaviour

Writers influenced by Foucault's work on governmentality have characterised emerging forms of governance in advanced liberal democracies as being based upon ‘technologies of the self’ in which power works through the self?regulation of subjects within constructed norms of responsible and ethical conduct. This ‘politics of behaviour’ has been particularly prominent in UK housing policy debates in relation to anti?social behaviour,

Landlords' Experiences of Housing Tenants Suffering from Severe Mental Illness: A Swedish Empirical Study.  

PubMed

The aim of this Swedish study was to describe landlords' experiences of having tenants suffering from severe mental illness. Sixteen landlords working in private and public housing agencies participated in open in-depth interviews. Data were subjected to a thematic latent content analysis. The results showed that having tenants with severe mental illness entails being confronted with various difficult circumstances, ranging from mismanagement of apartments to sensitivity among neighbours as well as issues regarding provocative behaviour. It involved providing assistance that was far beyond their professional obligations and to be neglected by the community-based psychiatric service system when in need of help. In order to support landlords and to prevent evictions of individuals with severe mental illness, community-based psychiatric services need to be more pro-active in their attempts to achieve collaboration with the parties at hand.

Smoking Behaviors and Cessation Interests Among Multiunit Subsidized Housing Tenants, Columbus, Ohio, 2011  

PubMed Central

Introduction Cessation services have been recommended to complement smoke-free policies in subsidized multiunit housing, but little is known about smoking- and cessation-related characteristics among subsidized housing tenants. This study examined smoking behaviors and cessation-related interests in a population of subsidized housing tenants. Methods A face-to-face survey was conducted in August to October 2011 with a probability sample of private subsidized housing lease holders in Columbus, Ohio (N = 301, 64% response rate). Results Almost half (47.5%) of respondents were current smokers, including smokers of cigarettes or small cigars. Smokers were less likely than nonsmokers to have health insurance and more likely to be at risk for food insecurity. Among smokers, 20.3% did not smoke daily and 35.0% smoked 5 or fewer cigarettes per day. More than half (61.3%) purchased single cigarettes in the past month, with higher rates among nondaily smokers. Most smokers intended to quit within 6 months or less (60.1%) and were interested in using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) (65.0%). Most respondents had Medicaid but only 30.4% knew Medicaid covered cessation medications. Conclusions This population of subsidized housing tenants had high rates of smoking, including light smoking. Interest in NRT was high and access can be improved by increasing awareness of Medicaid coverage among clients and health care providers. However, more research is needed about scalable, evidence-based cessation strategies for low-socioeconomic status and light smokers. Strategies to address environmental factors such as availability of single cigarettes should also be considered in parallel with smoke-free policies.

Predictors of voluntary home-smoking restrictions and associations with an objective measure of in-home smoking among subsidized housing tenants.  

PubMed

Abstract Purpose. Examine predictors of voluntary home-smoking restrictions (HSRs) and associations with an objective measure of in-home smoking. Design. Cross-sectional. Setting. Publicly subsidized multiunit housing units managed by private company in Columbus, Ohio, without a smoke-free housing policy. Subjects. Probability sample of primary leaseholders (N = 301, 64% response rate). Measures. Self-reported knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors collected during face-to-face survey in fall 2011, including individual (e.g., knowledge of health effects), social (e.g., number of friends who smoke), and environmental (e.g., safety) factors hypothesized to be related to having HSRs. Surface nicotine concentration (?g/m(2)) based on samples collected from wood surface in respondents' living rooms (n = 279). Analysis. Multiple linear and logistic regression were used to identify factors associated with having HSRs and with indoor surface nicotine concentrations. Results. Fewer than one-third (29.2%) of tenants had complete HSRs, while more than half (55.8%) had partial restrictions. Several individual and social factors, but no environmental/community factors, were associated with having HSRs. Type of HSRs (p < .001) and smoking status (p < .001) were independently associated with mean surface nicotine concentrations. Conclusion. Few subsidized housing tenants voluntarily limit in-home smoking. Partial restrictions could be considered as a harm reduction strategy but may be less effective among smokers. Strategies to change social norms are also needed to modify in-home smoking behavior among subsidized housing tenants. PMID:23621755

Childhood stature and adult cancer risk: the Boyd Orr cohort.  

PubMed

Cancer risk in adulthood may be influenced by aspects of childhood diet. In the absence of direct dietary data, indirect measures of childhood diet and nutritional status, such as anthropometric measurements, may be useful in investigating diet-cancer associations. Previous studies suggest that taller adults may have increased cancer risk. Peak growth for different anthropometric measures occurs at different times and so differential associations with cancer risk may indicate periods of development that are particularly important in determining future risk. 2,642 traced members of the Boyd Orr cohort had measures of foot length, shoulder breadth, height, and leg length made when they were aged 2-14 years; trunk length was derived from the difference between overall height and leg length. Subjects were followed-up over 59 years to determine all-cause (n = 547) and site-specific (n = 97 for lung, 69 breast, 59 colorectal, 33 prostate, 320 not related to smoking) cancer deaths and registrations. There were no strong associations between childhood anthropometric measurements and adult cancer risk. Odds ratios (ORs) were broadly consistent with a slight increase in risk with increasing childhood stature but no single measure was of particular importance. The strongest associations were seen for breast cancer (OR per standard deviation increase in foot length: 1.16 (95% CI: 0.90, 1.51), shoulder breadth: 1.16 (0.91, 1.49) and trunk: 1.26 (1.00, 1.60), and prostate cancer (OR for foot length: 1.22 (0.86, 1.75)). There was little effect of adjustment for confounding factors and very limited evidence that associations differed with measures made prior to the onset of puberty (comparing the associations in children aged <8 vs. 8+ years). There was no evidence that any of the five indicators of childhood growth was more strongly related to cancer risk than the other measures. PMID:18855108

Tenants' energy bill calculated by custom EMS and software  

SciTech Connect

A Dallas real estate company reduced energy bills by 25% by allocating costs among tenants more fairly. Xencom Inc. assembled an energy management system (EMS) and custom software for the company that monitors and bills tenants who override the EMS during off-hours. The 600-point system made up of components of a number of manufacturers was installed in two buildings. Payback should occur in 18 months. Tenants wishing to override the system between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. weekdays and between Saturday noon and 7 a.m. Monday dial the computer on any touch phone to give their access and employee code, which identifies the office space for billing. The employee then identifies which building systems he needs.

Is Boyd's operation a last solution that may prevent major amputations in diabetic foot patients?  

PubMed

We had several difficulties in dealing with diabetic foot lesions and infections at the level of midfoot and hindfoot. At this level of the foot, bone and joint involvement is quite common. We had to perform major amputations in most of these patients. As our search to overcome this problem continued, we concluded that the relationship between infection, necrosis, and hypo-avascular tissue is very strong in this part of the foot. At the end, we have seen that Boyd's operation can break this vicious cycle. Boyd's operation consists of talectomy, excision of articular surfaces of tibia and calcaneus, and tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis. It can be performed as single or 2-staged operation depending on clinical judgment. After the first stage of operation, the defect is left open for a period. With local wound care, the defect is prepared for definitive closure and closed secondarily. We have performed Boyd's operation in 16 patients with diabetic foot lesions and infections reaching midfoot and hindfoot regions. In 15 patients, complete healing was achieved and these patients were able to walk themselves. Mean follow-up period was 3.2 years. Most of the time the heel region and calcaneus are not on the pathways of severe foot infections. Therefore, the most important criterion that is necessary to perform Boyd's operation usually do exist. After the Boyd's operation, an optimal condition for wound healing is achieved by removing all bradytrophic (hypovascular) tissues in the foot. Boyd's operation is superior to other partial midfoot and hindfoot amputations in terms of anatomy and function. PMID:18590894

Of Images, Archives, and Anonymity: Glacier Photographs from Louise Arner Boyd's East Greenland Expeditions, 1933, 1937, and 1938  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Louise A. Boyd (1887-1972) was raised to wealth and privilege in San Raphael, CA. Her inherited fortune allowed unlimited travel, and in 1924 she arrived in Spitsbergen as a tourist. Infatuated by Arctic landscapes, Boyd resolved to return north in a more assertive role and ran three "preliminary" expeditions to Greenland, in 1926, 1928, and 1931. Boyd’s expeditions to East Greenland in 1933, 1937, and 1938 were predictive of the type of campaign that after WWII would characterize government-sponsored and international scientific efforts. “Planned as a unit,” these campaigns, sponsored by the American Geographical Society (AGS), were thoroughly integrated scientific expeditions incorporating glaciology, periglacial and glacial geomorphology, bedrock geology, botany, hydrography, topographic surveys, tides and currents, and magnetic observations within representative areas. The goal of the expeditions was to provide comprehensive characterization of the physical environment. The volumes resulting from this work contain many large-scale hydrographic and topographic maps, photomosaics, glacier maps, and chapters on the geology, glacial history, botany, and hydrology of the region. Boyd received extensive publicity for her Arctic expeditions, although much of it was concerned with the novelty of expeditions to remote locations being led by a woman. Boyd’s expeditions employed scientists who eventually became highly influential in their respective fields. Boyd employed, among others, the earth scientists J.H. Bretz, R.F. Flint, and A.L. Washburn. Other important personnel on these expeditions included AGS cartographer/surveyor O.M. Miller and his assistant, W.A. Wood, who employed novel ground-based photogrammetric techniques to construct a series of glacier maps at scales as large as 1:5000. The maps featured detailed error analyses, and are probably the first large-scale maps of known accuracy to be made of the Greenland Ice Sheet’s outlet glaciers. Boyd’s publications are lavishly illustrated with the photographs she made using a tripod-mounted aerial camera that was used later by Ansel Adams. Many of these photographs were taken from precisely established survey positions. Numbering in the thousands, Boyd’s Arctic photographs have rich but untapped potential for documenting environmental change in a dynamic cryospheric environment. Boyd’s work has been all but forgotten by cryospheric scientists, a situation that developed as a result of several factors: (1) AGS fell onto difficult times after WWII and disengaged from expeditionary work; (2) Boyd’s publications appeared in a relatively obscure monograph series; (3) Boyd insisted on tight control over the publication process; and (4) Boyd distributed her papers and artifacts to several archival organizations without creating documentary linkages. This presentation provides details about a new project concerned with using the Boyd expeditions’ map and photograph collections to document changes in the East Greenland environment over a period of nearly 80 years.

Effects of surface mining on the aquatic insects of Bear Creek, Boyd County, Kentucky  

SciTech Connect

The effects of surface mining on the aquatic insect community of Bear Creek, Boyd County, Kentucky, were examined. Sampling stations were established above the mine, near the mine and below the mine and selected biological and physiochemical factors were examined at these stations. Station 3 (above mine) had a higher pH, higher alkalinity, lower mineral hardness, less siltation and less ferric hydroxide deposition than either Station 2 (at mine) or Station 1 (below mine). The greatest number of specimens (81%) was collected at Station 3. There were 19 mayfly and stonefly taxa represented at Station 3. The Shannon-Weaver diversity index was significantly higher (P < 0.05) at Station 3 than at either Station 1 or Station 2. Examination of trophic relationships showed that shredders (chew and mine vascular plant tissue) were the most abundant group at Station 3, which may have been due to less ferric hydroxide deposition and thereby more vascular plant tissue available. Station 2 (at mine) had the least number of taxa collected, the lowest Shannon-Weaver diversity index value and predators were the most important (Importance Value) trophic group. Station 1 (below mine) was intermediate between Station 2 and Station 3, i.e., it seemed to be a recovery zone where the number of taxa collected began to increase and the physiochemical parameter values began to approach those of Station 3.

Tenant guidelines for energy-efficient renovation of buildings at the Presidio of San Francisco  

SciTech Connect

These Guidelines are intended to help current and future tenants of the Presidio work with designers and contractors to incorporate energy efficiency and sustainable practices into the renovations of the buildings. This guide is designed to complement the detailed Guidelines for Rehabilitating Buildings at the Presidio of San Francisco, available from the National Park Service. Energy efficiency yields benefits far beyond energy savings. Daylighting and efficient electric lighting, natural ventilation and cooling, and other conservation strategies improve tenant health, comfort, and productivity, while preserving the historical heritage of Presidio buildings. This guide examines the use of energy and resources and opportunities for efficiency in Presidio buildings on the basis of individual components and systems. The authors begin with recommended and discouraged practices for roofs, walls, and foundations, then move to windows and other opening. Next they address efficiency issues in building interiors--lighting, office equipment, and spacing planning. The authors follow with recommendations for mechanical and plumbing systems and conclude with insights on miscellaneous outdoor energy and resource concerns. A concise listing of sources of more detailed information is provided at the end of the document. The authors expect this guide to help tenants begin the process of using energy-efficient and sustainable practices throughout the Presidio of San Francisco.

Affordable housing through energy efficiency: The Northgate story  

SciTech Connect

In this paper we evaluate a comprehensive retrofit and rehabilitation effort to improve the comfort, affordability, and energy efficiency of 336 low-income housing units. The units had complete shell retrofits, including new siding, air-infiltration barriers, new windows and doors, and both roof and foundation insulation. In addition, the existing electric-baseboard heating system was replaced with a new gas-fired boiler for each apartment. New programmable thermostats, refrigerators, and tenant education were also included in the retrofit package. The evaluation of the project included pre- and post-retrofit utility bill analysis, computer simulation to evaluate the cost and saving of the individual measures, and a comprehensive survey of the residents regarding their comfort, behavior, and satisfaction with the retrofits. The analysis has shown energy savings of more than 20% for the shell measures, with a reduction in utility bills of nearly 50% from the combined measures. The resident survey shows high tenant satisfaction with the retrofits.

Using cognitive-functional assessment to predict self-care performance of memory care tenants.  

PubMed

A challenge in admitting individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias into memory care residential facilities is determining the appropriate level of service based on abilities and care needs. At intake, the incoming tenant's functional performance capacity is obtained through family or proxy report corroborated with screening results of global cognitive function. Based on this information, the agency determines the level of service needs; if misjudged, inadequate placement can be stressful for the individual and family and costly for the facility. This study examined the predictive validity of a clinically administered assessment of cognitive-functional performance, Cognitive Performance Test (CPT), in gauging service needs in 4 activities of daily living (ADL; dressing, eating/feeding, showering, and toothbrushing) with 57 tenants residing in a memory care-assisted living facility. Linear regression results revealed a significant relationship between CPT scores and ADL performance in all areas (P < .001) with CPT scores accounting for 51% to 62% of the variability in performance.

Landlords and tenants in the wake of abolition and ecological devastation in Brazil's Middle Paraíba Valley.  

PubMed

This article uses Barra do Piraí as a case study of rural land tenure, production, consumption, and labor in Brazil's Middle Paraíba Valley during the half century following abolition of slavery in 1888. Dairy farming and railroad development distinguished Barra do Piraí from other coffee-producing areas that suffered from ecological devastation. By 1900 the land's loss of fertility precluded further plantation agriculture in Barra do Piraí, leading to the transition from lucrative coffee cultivation to dairy farming based on meager capital inputs. Compared to the earlier coffee culture, dairy farms produced only modest wealth for landlords and required fewer laborers, compelling impoverished tenants to migrate in search of employment. Since Barra do Piraí was an important railroad junction, many rural laborers ended up in the locale after using the railroad as a migratory path. At the same time, the railroad and proto-industries that it stimulated provided alternative employment for rural laborers, thereby partially mitigating the leverage landlords had over the abundant labor force. The availability of industrial and proto-industrial employment created occupational diversity among rural tenants and introduced them to work routines that would become commonplace when the region more fully industrialized after 1940.

The size and gravity of the problem necessitated a purpose or aim that had nationwide application, yet lent itself to a microscopic look. Consequently, the goal that emanated was the design and development of an energy-related demonstration program that educates public housing residents, facilitates indigenous business development where appropriate, and trains residents to provide needed services.

Planning, housing and participation in Britain, 1968-1976.  

PubMed

The history of planning and social housing in post-war Britain has been dominated by the role of the state, local government, professionals (planners, architects, civil servants) and developers. This is hardly surprising, given that the partnerships created around these groups dominated the slum clearance and building process. The tenants have been absent from the 'history' because they were missing from the process. However, in the 1960s and 1970s the concept of participation began to emerge. It grew from broader social and cultural changes brought about through the emergence of welfare, consumerism and an ever greater awareness of 'rights'. The idea of participation was to increase participatory democracy by involving people in the planning process, by recognizing their rights to be involved in decisions which impacted on their lives. The state promoted the idea through legislation, but in practice the concept proved difficult to implement. Local authorities saw participation, at best, as a means of smoothing the planning process through the dissemination of ideas, thus limiting any scope for meaningful participation schemes. This article will look at the tension between the ideal and practice. It will also consider the reaction of many tenants who, frustrated at the attitude and policies forced on them by local government, became galvanized into action, creating tenant groups that would give their communities a voice.

[Housing conditions and perceived health: a study based on applications for social housing].  

PubMed

Poor living conditions and insanitary housing are important social determinants of health. This study examines health-related elements and risk factors linked to deteriorated housing as they appear in applications and requests for social housing from the tenants in Aubervilliers (93). 234 letters were analyzed, of which 50.4% mentioned a health problem related to habitat or housing. Somatic health problems and mental health problems, as well as problems related to well-being, are each present in at least a quarter of the cases. Half of the letters mention a sanitation problem; over-occupancy is abundant. The physical health problems seem to be linked to the unhealthy conditions and sanitation issues, while those of mental health and well-being are more closely related to the presence of high rates of overoccupancy. Despite the preliminary and empirical nature of this data collection process, the data confirm the necessity of addressing the link between housing conditions, requests for housing, and perceived health.

Boyd Report1  

SciTech Connect

Andrew Crow arrived at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory with the intention of continuing work on the Complex Particle Kinetic (CPK) method developed D. Larson and D. Hewett. Andrew Crow had previously worked on duplicating the results of D. Hewett in his previous work. Since arrival, A. Crow has been working with D. Larson on a slightly different project. The current method, still under development, is a Particle in Cell (PIC) code with the following features: (1) all particles begin each timestep at a gridpoint; (2) particles are then advanced in time using a standard special advancement method. The exact method has not been decided upon, but there are many reliable methods from which to choose. (3) All particles within each cell undergo a simultaneous implicit collision step. This is the current area of focus. Currently, A. Crow is not aware of any method of performing implicit collisions over a large number of charged particles. Implicit methods for charged particle movement and electron-electron collisions, have been developed. The work of L. pareschi and G. Russo on the Time Relaxed Direct Simulation Monte Carlo method, also appears to be a good basis for implicit particle collisions. (4) Each individual particle will be divided into a set of particles with a Gaussian velocity distribution. This will collect some of the thermal effects created by the collisions. This algorithm has not been created. (5) Particles will be projected on to the grid points. Currently, a linear weighting technique is intended to be used, but has not settled upon. (6) Once on the gridpoints the particle number will be reduced using a set of quadrature points based on the third order velocity moments of the particles. The method proposed by R. Fox has been programmed and shown to conserve energy, momentum and mass to machine precision. In addition to reducing the number of particles this method will work to quiet the simulation it will behave as a higher order version of the Quiet DSMC method proposed by B. Albright et al. (7) These quadrature points then become the new particles for the next timestep. the advantage of this method can be many: The self force on ions can be easily removed since all particles begin on grid points. The size of the timesteps should not be limited by collision rate, and should only be impacted by particle travel time through the cell. The particle reduction technique should keep many of the higher order features of the particle distribution while reducing the number of particles in the system. It should also quite the variance in the system. The two largest unknowns, at this time are, how large a part numerical diffusion will play in the scheme and how computationally expensive each timestep will be.

Solar House  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In this activity students work in teams to design and build a model of a solar house after researching several websites. Students will discover that a solar house takes advantage of solar energy to minimize the use of traditional energy sources and can include design elements that take advantage of the sun's rays to light and heat the house, to heat water, and to set up a favorable flow of air. They also learn that many solar houses contain a solar mass that will absorb the heat during the day and release it slowly at night and a passive solar house will also take into account the angle of the sun's rays, to maximize heating during the winter and shade during the summer. This site contains all of the specifications for planning, building, and testing the model and a rubric for grading the project.

Characterization of NiTinol under torsional loads through a numerical implementation of the Boyd Lagoudas constitutive model and comparison of the results with experimental data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Shape memory alloys (SMA) are a particular family of materials, discovered during the 1930s and only now used in technological applications, with the property of returning to an imposed shape after a deformation and heating process. The study of the mechanical behaviour of SMA, through a proper constitutive model, and the possible ensuing applications form the core of an interesting research field, developed in the last few years and still now subject to studies driven by the aim of understanding and characterizing the peculiar properties of these materials. The aim of this work is to study the behaviour of SMA under torsional loads. To obtain a forecast of the mechanical response of the SMA, we utilized a numerical algorithm based on the Boyd-Lagoudas model and then we compared the results with those from some experimental tests. The experiments were conducted by subjecting helicoidal springs with a constant cross section to a traction load. It is well known, in fact, that in such springs the main stress under traction loads is almost completely a pure torsional stress field. The interest in these studies is due to the absence of data on such tests in the literature for SMA, and because there are an increasing number of industrial applications where SMA are subjected to torsional load, in particular in medicine, and especially in orthodontic drills which usually work under torsional loads.

Childhood economic conditions and length of life: evidence from the UK Boyd Orr cohort, 1937-2005.  

PubMed

We study the importance of childhood socioeconomic conditions in predicting differences in life expectancy using data from a large sample of children collected in 16 locations in England and Scotland in 1937-39, who have been traced through official death records up to 2005. We estimate a number of duration of life models that control for unobserved family heterogeneity. Our results confirm that childhood conditions such as household income and the quality of the home environment are significant predictors of longevity. Importantly, however, the role of socioeconomic status appears to differ across cause of death, with household income being a significant predictor of death from smoking-related cancer. Moreover, we find that (1) poor housing conditions in childhood is associated with reduced longevity, that (2) early doctor-assessed childhood health conditions significantly predict a reduced length of life, that (3) children born in a location with relatively high infant mortality rates live significantly fewer years, and that (4) there is a high correlation in longevity across children from the same family across all causes of death. We estimate that the difference in life expectancy between those with the 'best' and 'worst' observable characteristics is about 9 years, which increases to 20 years when we take into account the 'best' and 'worst' observable and unobservable household characteristics.

Superinsulated houses  

SciTech Connect

Superinsulation is a direct response to the fast-rising cost of home heating. Of the many kinds of responses, superinsulation is proving to be the simplest and most cost-effective. Until the oil embargo of 1973 there was little interest in saving heat. When the oil shortage arrived and fuel costs doubled and redoubled, many architects responded, at first, by invoking solar energy. They examined the designs of existing solar-heated houses and proposed a great variety of new designs, most of which appeared - to the uninitiated - to have great promise. Most of the early designs were of the active type; some were of the passive type; a few were of the hybrid design.

How much choice is there in housing choice vouchers? Neighborhood risk and free market rental housing accessibility for active drug users in Hartford, Connecticut  

PubMed Central

Background Since the mid-1970s, the dominant model for U.S. federal housing policy has shifted from unit-based programs to tenant based vouchers and certificates, intended to allow recipients a choice in their housing and neighborhoods. Surprisingly little research has examined the question of where those with Section 8 housing vouchers are able to live, but some research suggests that voucher holders are more likely to reside in distressed neighborhoods than unsubsidized renter households. Further, federal housing policy has limited drug users' access to housing subsidies. In turn, neighborhood disorder has been associated with higher levels of injection drug risk behaviors, and higher drug-related mortality. This paper explores rental accessibility and neighborhood characteristics of advertised rental housing in Hartford CT. Methods Brief telephone interviews were conducted with landlords or management companies with units to rent in Hartford to explore housing accessibility measured as initial move in costs, credit and criminal background checks, and whether rental subsidies were accepted. These data were supplemented with in-depth interviews with landlords, shelter staff and active users of heroin, crack or cocaine. Apartments for rent were geocoded and mapped using ArcGIS. We used location quotients to identify areas where low-income rental housing is concentrated. Finally, we mapped apartments in relation to drug and violent arrest rates in each neighborhood. Results High security deposits, criminal background and credit checks limit housing accessibility even for drug users receiving vouchers. While most landlords or management companies accepted housing subsidies, several did not. Voucher units are concentrated in neighborhoods with high poverty neighborhoods. Landlords reported little incentive to accept rental subsidies in neighborhoods with low crime rates, but appreciated the guarantee provided by Section 8 in high crime neighborhoods that were less likely to attract applicants with good jobs and credit. Conclusion Housing vouchers in themselves do not greatly improve recipients' choice of neighborhood and voucher units are concentrated in the most distressed neighborhoods. Policy changes are needed to increase landlords' incentives to accept housing subsidies. Interventions to improve neighborhood conditions are needed to improve the probability of success for those recovering from drug addictions.

Housing and Health in Ghana: The Psychosocial Impacts of Renting a Home  

PubMed Central

This paper reports the findings of a qualitative study investigating the impacts of renting a home on the psychosocial health of tenants in the Accra Metropolitan Area (AMA) in Ghana. In-depth interviews (n = 33) were conducted with private renters in Adabraka, Accra. The findings show that private renters in the AMA face serious problems in finding appropriate and affordable rental units, as well as a persistent threat of eviction by homeowners. These challenges tend to predispose renters to psychosocial distress and diminishing ontological security. Findings are relevant to a range of pluralistic policy options that emphasize both formal and informal housing provision, together with the reorganization and decentralization of the Rent Control Board to the district level to facilitate easy access by the citizenry.

Smoke alarm installation and function in inner London council housing

AIM—To determine the prevalence of and predictors for installed, functioning smoke alarms in council (public) housing in a low income, multi-ethnic urban area.?DESIGN—Cross sectional study.?SETTING—40 materially deprived electoral wards in two inner London boroughs.?PARTICIPANTS—Occupants of 315 addresses randomly selected from council housing lists, with 75% response rate.?MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES—Installation and function of smoke alarms based on inspection and testing.?RESULTS—39% (95% confidence interval (CI) 33% to 46%) of council tenants owned a smoke alarm, 31% (95% CI 25% to 38%) had an installed alarm (of which 54% were correctly installed), and 16% (95% CI 12% to 22%) had at least one installed, functioning alarm. Alarms most commonly failed because they lacked batteries (72%). In multivariate modelling, having an installed, functioning alarm was most strongly associated with living in a house versus a flat (apartment) (odds ratio (OR) 3.2, 95% CI 1.1 to 10.0), having two resident adults versus one (OR 2.8, 95% CI 1.2 to 6.5), and recognising stills from a Home Office television smoke alarm campaign (OR 2.4, 95% CI 1.1 to 5.5).?CONCLUSIONS—Fires are a leading cause of child injury and death, particularly among those younger than 5 years of age and those in social classes IV and V. Smoke alarms are associated with a significantly reduced risk of death in residential fires, and are more protective in households with young children. Few council properties in a multi-ethnic, materially deprived urban area had any installed, functioning smoke alarms, despite a high risk of residential fires and fire related injuries in such areas. Effective methods to increase the prevalence of installed and functioning alarms must be identified.??

House Calls in Utah  

PubMed Central

To learn the criteria Utah physicians use in making or not making house calls and their specialty, age and frequency of calls, a random sample of half of Utah's physicians in family practice, general practice and general medicine was surveyed. Of 225 respondents, 70% reported making house calls at an average rate of 2.6 per month. More family practitioners made house calls than did internists; older physicians made more house calls than their younger counterparts. An estimated 82% of the calls were for patients aged 65 years and older. The most frequently stated reasons for making house calls were that patients were homebound and to assess the family or home situation. Reasons given for not making house calls were inefficient use of time and lack of equipment or necessary facilities.

Raised houses reduce mosquito bites  

PubMed Central

Background In many parts of continental Africa house construction does not appear to impede entry of malaria vectors and, given their generally late biting cycle, the great majority of transmission takes place indoors. In contrast, many houses in Săo Tomé, 140 km off the coast of Gabon, are raised on stilts and built of wooden planks. Building on stilts is a time-honoured, but largely untested, way of avoiding mosquito bites. Exposure may also be affected by mosquito activity times and age composition of host-seeking females. A study was therefore undertaken on the island of Săo Tomé to determine if exposure to Anopheles gambiae, the only vector on the island, varied with house construction or time of the night. Methods A series of all-night landing collections were undertaken out of doors at ground level, inside houses at ground level, on the verandas of, and inside houses built on stilts. The gonotrophic age of an unselected sample of insects from the first three hours of landing collection (18:00–21:00) was determined by dissection. In addition, 1,149 miniature light-trap collections were obtained from 125 houses in the study area. Numbers collected were related to house construction. Results Biting of An. gambiae took place primarily outside at ground level. Less than one third of biting occurred inside houses. Houses built on stilts had half the number of An. gambiae in them compared to those built at ground level. Conversely houses with an eaves gap had more An. gambiae in them than houses without such a gap. Gonotrophic age did not affect house entry rates in An. gambiae. House construction affected Culex quinquefasciatus less than An. gambiae. Mean density per house, derived from a series of 1,490 randomly assigned light-trap collections, was over-dispersed with 18% of houses having 70% of the vectors. Conclusion House construction plays an important role in determining exposure to malaria vectors in Săo Tomé. Neighbours can have very different exposure levels. Recommendations for improvement in control are given.

"Weathering" HOPE VI: the importance of evaluating the population health impact of public housing demolition and displacement.  

PubMed

HOPE VI has funded the demolition of public housing developments across the United States and created in their place mixed-income communities that are often inaccessible to the majority of former tenants. This recent uprooting of low-income, urban, and predominantly African American communities raises concern about the health impacts of the HOPE VI program for a population that already shoulders an enormous burden of excess morbidity and mortality. In this paper, we rely on existing literature about HOPE VI relocation to evaluate the program from the perspective of weathering-a biosocial process hypothesized by Geronimus to underlie early health deterioration and excess mortality observed among African Americans. Relying on the weathering framework, we consider the effects of HOPE VI relocation on the material context of urban poverty, autonomous institutions that are health protective, and on the broader discourse surrounding urban poverty. We conclude that relocated HOPE VI residents have experienced few improvements to the living conditions and economic realities that are likely sources of stress and illness among this population. Additionally, we find that relocated residents must contend with these material realities, without the health-protective, community-based social resources that they often rely on in public housing. Finally, we conclude that by disregarding the significance of health-protective autonomous institutions and by obscuring the structural context that gave rise to racially segregated public housing projects, the discourse surrounding HOPE VI is likely to reinforce health-demoting stereotypes of low-income urban African American communities. Given the potential for urban and housing policies to negatively affect the health of an already vulnerable population, we argue that a health-equity perspective is a critical component of future policy conversations.

Solar house, Freiburg  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In a 12-family-appartment house with improved thermal insulation, the realistic operation of two solar Domestic Hot Water (DHW) and heating systems with evacuated tubular collectors was analyzed for 6yr. The evacuated collectors operate reliably and show no degradation. With annual collection efficiencies of up to 51%, the collectors deliver a solar contribution of 60% to 67% of the DHW-load. Annual system efficiencies range from 39% to 42% corresponding to 420 to 500 kWh/sqm/yr useful solar energy. The specific energy consumption for heating is 10.2 l of heating oil/sqm/yr (heated floor area 652 sqm); net energy requirement is 57,270 kWh/yr. Due to its low size (5% of the total living area) the collector field used for space heating contributes only 12% of the heating load. Evacuated tubular collectors in DHW-systems improve solar system efficiency by a factor of two relative to conventional systems.

Housing need, housing assistance, and connection to HIV medical care.  

PubMed

HIV infection has become a chronic condition that for most persons can be effectively managed with regular monitoring and appropriate medical care. However, many HIV positive persons remain unconnected to medical care or have less optimal patterns of health care utilization than recommended by good clinical practice standards. This paper investigates housing status as a contextual factor affecting access and maintenance in appropriate HIV medical care. Data provided from 5,881 interviews conducted from 1994 to 2006 with a representative sample of 1,661 persons living with HIV/AIDS in New York City demonstrated a strong and consistent relationship between housing need and remaining outside of or marginal to HIV medical care. In contrast, housing assistance increased access and retention in medical care and appropriate treatment. The relationship between housing and medical care outcomes remain controlling for client demographics, health status, insurance coverage, co-occurring mental illness, and problem drug use and the receipt of supportive services to address co-occurring conditions. Findings provide strong evidence that housing needs are a significant barrier to consistent, appropriate HIV medical care, and that receipt of housing assistance has an independent, direct impact on improved medical care outcomes.

Housing Price Diffusion Patterns at Different Aggregation Levels: An Examination of Housing Market Efficiency

Recent research supports the proposition that housing markets are not informationally efficient. That is, housing prices do not immediately reflect publicly available information. Another question of interest is whether housing price changes in one location or for one type of housing can be predicted not only by their own history, but also by housing price changes in other locations or

Control of radon in houses  

SciTech Connect

This report, drafted by NCRP Scientific Committee 82 on Control of Radon in Houses, evaluates the techniques available to reduce radon and radon decay product concentrations. It is intended that this report would be useful to home owners, to individuals involved in marketing services to reduce radon and radon decay products in houses, and to the scientific community interested in control techniques for radon and radon decay products. Sections 1 and 2 of the report provide background information on the public health significance of indoor radon and on the sources and behavior of this radionuclide and its airborne decay products inside houses. The reader desiring information primarily on the control of radon may prefer to shift to Section 3 immediately after reading the Introduction. Included in Section 6 of the report are tables comparing the removal effectiveness and estimated costs of various control techniques, and a glossary of terms used in the report is provided.

The Winners in China's Urban Housing Reform  

PubMed Central

Housing reform in China has proceeded on two tracks: privatization of public housing and development of a new private housing sector. During this period of transition, rents have remained relatively low in the remaining public housing, and purchase prices offered to occupants of public housing have been well below market prices. Although these rents and prices are partly based on known formulas, there is considerable variability in how much people pay for similar apartments. This study uses 2000 Census data to estimate the housing subsidy received by the remaining renters in the public sector and purchasers of public housing, based on private sector prices for housing of comparable quality and size. The paper also analyzes variation in the estimated discount from market prices that these people receive. The findings show that the biggest winners in China’s transition from socialist housing allocation are those who were favored in the previous system, based on such factors as residence status, education and occupation.

The Seattle Open Housing Campaign  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Many cities struggled with the issue of open housing in the 1950s and 1960s, and Seattle was a contested site in the struggle for civil rights. Until 1968, it was legal to discriminate against minorities in Seattle when renting apartments or selling real estate. This fine website created by the Seattle Municipal Archives explores the history of the open housing campaign through a range of primary documents, including photographs, legal documents, and so on. The Table of Contents provides a nice introduction to the subject, along with thematic areas such as Restrictive Covenants and Years of Ferment: 1964-1967. Visitors would do well to start with the Restrictive Covenants section, as it explains the role of these clauses in keeping minorities out of certain neighborhoods.

Development strategy for superinsulated housing  

SciTech Connect

This project addressed the problem of introducing radically new construction principles into the residential development arena in the City of Saint Louis which targeted substantial reductions in heating and cooling costs. Specifically, the goal was to devise a program that could explore the use of ''superinsulation'' as standard practice in the housing industry, both for new construction and rehabilitation. The basic approach was to implement a demonstration program that would produce a number of superinsulated housing units of a variety of types. These units would, in effect, be the ''test cases'' to adapt Canadian and European superinsulation standards to a midwestern United States climate. Subsequent monitoring of these units for actual energy use would ''prove'' the reliability and high cost-effectiveness of the technology.

Two families in which successive spouses who lived in the same house developed multiple myeloma are reported. In the first instance, a man whose first wife died of multiple myeloma remarried, and his second wife also developed myeloma. In the second family, a woman's first husband died of multiple myeloma and her second husband did too. Radiation studies of the houses and yards showed no increased radioactivity. No evidence was found for excessive exposure to chemicals or other environmental agents, for contact with other patients having similar malignancies, or for exposure to viruses or other transmissible factors. The significance of the occurrence of multiple myeloma in subsequent spouses is unknown. It is hoped that this report will stimulate research for other instances and lead to careful epidemiologic, radiologic, and virologic studies.

Remotely serviced filter and housing  

DOEpatents

A filter system for a hot cell comprises a housing adapted for input of air or other gas to be filtered, flow of the air through a filter element, and exit of filtered air. The housing is tapered at the top to make it easy to insert a filter cartridge holds the filter element while the air or other gas is passed through the filter element. Captive bolts in trunnion nuts are readily operated by electromechanical manipulators operating power wrenches to secure and release the filter cartridge. The filter cartridge is adapted to make it easy to change a filter element by using a master-slave manipulator at a shielded window station. 6 figs.

Post-Tsunami Reconstruction in Sri Lanka: Houses or Housing?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Reconstruction can be an opportunity to address longer-term livelihood vulnerability within poor communities and households, and to empower the most vulnerable. The post-tsunami reconstruction efforts in Sri Lanka can be seen on two disconnected scales. On a local scale there seems to be a growing recognition by district-level government and NGOs on the importance of households in creating social, human and financial capital, as demonstrated by many programs targeted at rebuilding livelihoods and income-generating activities. On a national scale, however, programs have revealed an emphasis on houses as the physical capital rather than housing as the arena of social and economic life. The aim of national-scale programs is to deliver tangible and quantifiable products, in the form of houses built, often without regard of whether this complements or disrupts livelihoods. One example of such a directive is the implementation of a coastal buffer zone which will ban any new construction within a 100 to 200 meter band from the ocean and allowing only structures that sustained less than 40 percent damage to remain and rebuild. In general these kind of surviving structures along the coast are businesses such as hotels and restaurants. In an island nation such as Sri Lanka, where beach front property is by and large considered low-income housing, typically inhabited by fishermen who rely on the ocean for their livelihoods, the buffer zone constitutes a drastic oversight of local processes shaping these households. The product-oriented solution on the national scale has resulted in building permanent houses for fishery communities in resettlement sites kilometers away from the ocean. The focus of this presentation will be on reconciling the need for immediate shelter needs with a long-term perspective of livelihood rehabilitation using Sri Lanka as a case study. Houses themselves are often not an immediate priority for local people, whose first need is likely to resume income-generating activities. In normal times, building houses is seen as a multi-stage process often fitted around the local economic calendar: annual farming or fishing cycles for example. Disaster victims may choose to stay in makeshift shelters in the short term, hoping to have more time, money or materials for rebuilding later. A major challenge for the tsunami-stricken areas in Sri Lanka is to find ways of widening public participation in what to date has been a governmental framework that operates on two disconnected scales in its reconstruction efforts. There is a general absence of mechanisms for incorporating community participation into the governmental decision-making process. Local governments might have also been expected to play a larger role in recovery decision making, but frequently lack both the resources and the authority to become actively involved. Lack of participation in the construction process, has led on an over-reliance on outsiders, reinforcing an attitude of raised expectations.

America's affordable housing crisis: a contract unfulfilled.  

PubMed

For many poor Americans, having a decent home and suitable living environment remains a dream. This lack of adequate housing is not only a burden for many of the poor, but it is harmful to the larger society as well, because of the adverse effects of inadequate housing on public health. Not only is the failure to provide adequate housing shortsighted from a policy perspective, but it is also a failure to live up to societal obligations. There is a societal obligation to meet the housing needs of everyone, including the most disadvantaged. Housing assistance must become a federally-funded entitlement. PMID:11988431

The house of the future  

ScienceCinema

Learn what it will take to create tomorrow's net-zero energy home as scientists reveal the secrets of cool roofs, smart windows, and computer-driven energy control systems. The net-zero energy home: Scientists are working to make tomorrow's homes more than just energy efficient -- they want them to be zero energy. Iain Walker, a scientist in the Lab's Energy Performance of Buildings Group, will discuss what it takes to develop net-zero energy houses that generate as much energy as they use through highly aggressive energy efficiency and on-site renewable energy generation. Talking back to the grid: Imagine programming your house to use less energy if the electricity grid is full or price are high. Mary Ann Piette, deputy director of Berkeley Lab's building technology department and director of the Lab's Demand Response Research Center, will discuss how new technologies are enabling buildings to listen to the grid and automatically change their thermostat settings or lighting loads, among other demands, in response to fluctuating electricity prices. The networked (and energy efficient) house: In the future, your home's lights, climate control devices, computers, windows, and appliances could be controlled via a sophisticated digital network. If it's plugged in, it'll be connected. Bruce Nordman, an energy scientist in Berkeley Lab's Energy End-Use Forecasting group, will discuss how he and other scientists are working to ensure these networks help homeowners save energy.

First wild XXY house mice.  

PubMed

Laboratory house mice (Mus musculus) with the XXY condition can be generated with ease and have been used as a biomedical model. However, although the XXY constitution has been described in humans and many domestic and wild mammal species, and a very large number of wild house mice have been karyotyped previously, no wild individuals of M. musculus with an XXY karyotype have ever been reported. Therefore, it is rather extraordinary that two wild XXY house mice were caught by us on two different farms in northern Italy in 2008. Except for the extra X chromosome, one male had a standard karyotype (2n = 40) and the other, the karyotype of the Cremona metacentric population (2n = 22). In this paper, the phenotype of these two individuals is described. Observations for both of these wild males agree with those of laboratory XXY mice, i.e., they had a normal body mass and appearance, but significantly smaller testes than normal, and no visible germ cells. The incidence of the XXY chromosome anomaly in wild mice (two among 5,123 wild mice surveyed by us and our colleagues, i.e., approximately 0.08% among wild-caught males) is intermediate between that found in male laboratory mice (approximately 0.04%) and that found in male humans (0.2%).

Root Causes of the Housing Bubble  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this chapter we investigate root causes of the recent US housing bubble which has been caused a serious downturn in US economic growth since autumn of 2008. We propose a simple model of housing markets in order to indicate the possible determinants of recent housing prices. Utilizing the model, we verify a number of hypotheses which have been proposed in the recent literature on the housing bubbles. We suggest that the main causes of the housing bubble from 2000 to 2006 are (1) non-elastic housing supply in the metropolitan areas, and (2) declines in the mortgage loan rate and the housing premium by the massive mortgage credit expansion. We also suggest that these factors were strongly influenced by policies that governments and the Federal Reserve Board performed.

Housing supply and residential segregation in Ireland.  

PubMed

The article examines the role of housing supply in ethnic diversity and the residential segregation of Asian, African and eastern European immigrants from Irish nationals in Ireland. Housing supply is defined as the proportions of new housing, private rental accommodation and social housing among all housing units in an electoral district. Multivariate regressions reveal that, among all three housing supply variables, the proportion of private rentals had the largest effect on ethnic diversity and immigrant— Irish segregation. Areas with higher proportions of private rental units were more ethnically diverse, had greater presences of Africans, Asians and eastern Europeans (as opposed to high concentrations of Irish nationals) and exhibited greater integration between each of the three immigrant groups and Irish nationals. The article concludes with a discussion of immigrant assimilation and questions whether the patterns of residential integration observed would further facilitate other forms of social inclusion for immigrants in Irish society.

Housing Preferences among Adults with Dual Diagnoses in Different Stages of Treatment and Housing Types  

PubMed Central

Housing is an essential component of psychiatric rehabilitation, particularly for consumers with dual diagnoses. Research has not clearly examined why and when consumers prefer different types of housing. This exploratory study examined 1) whether housing preferences differ between stage of treatment for substance abuse, 2) whether consumers who prefer certain housing types have preferences for certain characteristics, and 3) whether consumers living in different types of housing report differences in social support, choice, and housing satisfaction. A total of 103 participants living in supervised housing (n= 65), independent apartment housing (n= 22), single room occupancy hotels (n= 11), and with family (n= 5) completed self-report questionnaires. Results showed that 1) the majority of participants preferred their own apartment or house across different stages of treatment, 2) preference for supervised housing was associated with on-site staff and peer support while preference for apartment housing was associated with autonomy and privacy, and 3) consumers in single room occupancies reported the least choice and lowest satisfaction. These findings contribute to the understanding of consumers’ housing preferences and the differences consumers perceive between certain housing types.

Minerals Bill introduced in House  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A bill that aims to strengthen a national minerals policy and to establish a three-member White-House-level council to coordinate the development of this policy was introduced in the House of Representatives on April 30 by James D. Santini (D-Nev.). Entitled the National Minerals Security Act (NMSA), the legislation, if passed, also would amend tax laws to assist the mining industry to make capital investments to locate and produce strategic minerals; it would provide the means for the Secretary of the Interior to make withdrawn public lands available for mineral development; and it would create a revolving fund for the sale and purchase of strategic minerals.Santini estimates that 4 billion tons of minerals are needed annually to sustain the nation's economy. Much of the minerals are supplied by other nations, however; Santini wants to see an end to the United States' dependence on foreign countries, especially those that seem relatively unstable politically. ‘The U.S. has placed its national security in the hands of a few foreign nations,’ Santini said in a recent press conference. ‘We are heavily dependent on the region of southern Africa for 76% of our cobalt, 93% of our platinum, 48% of our chromium, and a host of other strategic and critical minerals. Without these minerals, we cannot build jet aircraft, weapons, or other military hardware vitally important to our national security.’

High Boskage House Baseball Pages  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Two new baseball sites on the Web allow you to follow the action in real time, and analyze statistics from the 1996 season on a day to day basis. The Instant Ballpark allows spectators (if they have Java enabled browsers) to actually view a Java applet graphic of the game. This harkens back to the days before radio, when fans by the thousands stood in front of "animated billboards" to follow the progress of World Series games. The Instant Ballpark provides tracer bullets to show the path of the ball, a scrolling scoreboard, and the ability to switch between games with the click of a mouse. And if you don't have Java capability, you can follow current text descriptions, play by play. The site contains a complete archive of all games played, standings, statistics, and schedule as well. Another site, the High Boskage House Baseball Pages, offers detailed, "normalized" statistical analysis, and attempts to account for the effect that such factors as the ball park and the "lively ball" have on player statistics. As such it takes actual player statistics and creates other statistics from them. The results are, of course, controversial, and this site is not for the feint of heart. But if you love statistics as much as the game, it is worth looking at.

Inventing the low-energy house  

SciTech Connect

Housing trends evolve and develop ingenious responses to the changing energy situation. Housing energy is used for heating space and water, for appliances, and, indirectly, for transportation. Energy-conserving house design has passed through three distinct stages during the past 15 years: active solar and passive solar stages, both based on supply, and the superinsulation stage based on using less energy by blocking heat loss through the building shell, windows, and air exchange. Future development will include ventilation heat and waste hot water heat recovery, daylighting, and total energy systems. Improvements to existing housing stock are slow, but the effects of retrofit incentives are showing up in national statistics. (DCK)

Public housing accommodations for individuals with disabilities.  

PubMed

The federal Housing Act of 1962 as amended and the subsequent laws of accommodations insure that all groups within American society, including those with disabilities, have access to housing opportunities. In spite of the clear provisions of various laws of accommodations enacted after 1962, it is questionable whether disabled individuals are adequately served by resident programs operated by Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) because rates of poverty, unemployment, domestic violence, and suicide are much higher among people with disabilities than in the nondisabled population. There are approximately 5 million residents living in 2.5 public housing units nationwide. New York, Puerto Rico, Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore have the five largest PHAs in the country. In combination, they rent 320,000 of the 1,300,495 inventory of rental properties owned by the country's 3,400 PHAs. Elderly and disabled residents without children account for 43% of all public housing families in the country. PMID:12809381

The Role of Housing Type and Housing Quality in Urban Children with Asthma  

PubMed Central

The goal of this study was to assess the relationship between type and quality of housing and childhood asthma in an urban community with a wide gradient of racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and housing characteristics. A parent-report questionnaire was distributed in 26 randomly selected New York City public elementary schools. Type of housing was categorized using the participants’ addresses and the Building Information System, a publicly-accessible database from the New York City Department of Buildings. Type of housing was associated with childhood asthma with the highest prevalence of asthma found in public housing (21.8%). Residents of all types of private housing had lower odds of asthma than children living in public housing. After adjusting for individual- and community-level demographic and economic factors, the relationship between housing type and childhood asthma persisted, with residents of private family homes having the lowest odds of current asthma when compared to residents of public housing (odds ratio: 0.51; 95% confidence interval, 0.22, 1.21). Factors associated with housing quality explain some of the clustering of asthma in public housing. For example, the majority (68.7%) of public housing residents reported the presence of cockroaches, compared to 21% of residents of private houses. Reported cockroaches, rats, and water leaks were also independently associated with current asthma. These findings suggest differential exposure and asthma risk by urban housing type. Interventions aimed at reducing these disparities should consider multiple aspects of the home environment, especially those that are not directly controlled by residents.

Dust concentration was measured by Laser-monitor in two at a time houses for layers with litter or with cages and in two at a time houses for growing chicken with litter or with cages in the middle of the keeping area, in the outlet opening and in 3, 10, 50 and 100 m distance over a period of 8 weeks in winter, summer and spring/autumn. Dust values have shown only less dynamics between 8 am and 5 pm. Significant positive correlation was found between dust concentration and age of poultry, keeping time resp. in litter housing system but not in cage housing system. Also, it was demonstrated a significant relation between dust concentration inside of poultry house, at the outlet openings and in 3 m distance in the outdoor air. There was no influence evident of indoor dust concentration on the dust value in the environment in more than 3 m distance to the poultry house. It was shown a low dust concentration of 0.1% up to 2.1%--compared to the indoor dust values--in 50 and 100 m distance to outlet ventilation system independent on housing, climatic and topographic factors.

What is a low-energy house?  

SciTech Connect

Traditionally, a ``low-energy`` house has been one that used little energy for space heating. But space heating typically accounts for less than half of the energy used by new US homes, and for low heating energy homes, space heating is often the third largest end use, behind water heating and appliances, and sometimes behind cooling. Low space heat alone cannot identify a low-energy house. To better understand the determinants of a low-energy house, we collected data on housing characteristics, incremental costs, and energy measurements from energy-efficient houses around the world and in a range of climates. We compare the energy required to provide thermal comfort as well as water heating, and other appliances. We do not have a single definition of a low-energy house, but through comparisons of actual buildings, we show how different definitions and quantitative indicators fail. In comparing the energy use of whole houses, weather normalization can be important, but for cases in which heating or cooling energy is surpassed by other end uses, other normalization methods must be used.

Demonstration house doctor program. Final project report  

SciTech Connect

Central Oregon Renewable Resources, Inc. (CORR), a non-profit educational organization, received funding from the United States Department of Energy's Appropriate Technology Small Grants Program to demonstrate the House Doctor retrofit program in Central Oregon. The House Doctor program was created at Princeton University. Princeton's energy conservation research project at Twin Rivers, New Jersey, discovered that traditional attic insulation techniques fell short of their predicted fuel savings by between 30 and 70%. The cause of this startling discrepancy between actual and predicted reductions in heat loss was found to be a complex collection of attic bypass routes which were allowing heated interior air to escape around and through the insulation. Tests by the Bonneville Power Administration confirm that simply adding insulation to a house does not reduce air infiltration. CORR's House Doctor program was in most respects an unqualified success. Although CORR was not able to convince people to learn to be house doctors themselves, the Blower Door was shown to be a very effective diagnostic tool and substantial reductions in air infiltration were realized from a one day House Doctor visit. Costs to savings ratios appear to be very favorable. It seems only a matter of time before house doctoring becomes a standard part of the repertoire of the region's residential conservation programs.

Access to Housing in Urban China  

PubMed Central

Like income inequality, housing inequality in urban China is strongly affected by state policies that give preferential treatment to insiders. In this case, the key policies are related to their residence status, which involves not only their migration history but also their legal position. Using data from the Chinese census of 2000 for eight large cities, this study shows how residence status affects access to various pathways to housing. In addition to the well-known marginal housing situation of the recent ‘floating population’, it documents surprising advantages for migrants with urban registration status and persistent disadvantages for rural migrants regardless of how long they have lived in the city.

Step beyond the envelope house  

SciTech Connect

Advantages and disadvantages of envelope, double-shelled houses are listed and discussed with the objective of selecting qualities worth retaining. Recently evolved designs combining the obvious benefits of a tight, well-insulated primary space with an integral multi-purpose, earth coupled sunspace are described. Four designs illustrated are: (1) conventional double-shell; (2) double-shell with additional mass; (3) conventional rockbed; and (4) differential heat storage. Major south glazing is at the sunspace, using the most significant thermal advantage of the buffering air envelope. The use of earth-coupling and sub-floor thermal mass is cited as allowing increased fenestration at the primary living space, eliminating the need for mass walls or discrete heat storage in the sunspace. Superinsulation reduces heating requirements, and warm air from the peak of the sunspace is blown through thermal mass in the floor of the primary living space. The Julian residence based on the above design features is described and illustrated in some detail. It is postulated that future designs will reserve more of the surplus heat generated in the sunspace to maintain higher minimum temperatures for optimum plant growth and livability. (MJJ)

Case study of the Blouin superinsulated house  

SciTech Connect

An evaluation is made of a superinsulated house designed by Scott Blouin and constructed in 1981 in South Royalton, Vermont. The house is distinguished by a combination of energy conservation features, including extensive thermal insulation, air infiltration control, and south orientation for solar heating benefit. The experiment results demonstrate that the energy needed for space heating is smaller than that for any house yet examined by Brookhaven National Laboratory. Alternative operating modes and designs are identified which could improve the house thermal and economic performance. It is concluded that the building thermal envelope performs nearly as calculated, and that most of the features employed are economically competitive with many common low-risk investments. A brief review of the development of super-insulated building technology and of marketplace issues is included.

Achieving Sustainable Construction in Affordable Housing  

SciTech Connect

An energy-efficient design and construction checklist and information sheets on energy-efficient design and construction are two products being developed. These products will help affordable housing providers take the first steps toward a whole-house approach to the design and implementation of energy-efficient construction practices. The checklist presents simple and clear guidance on energy improvements that can be readily addressed now by most affordable housing providers. The information sheets complement the checklist by providing installation instructions and material specifications that are accompanied by detailed graphics. The information sheets also identify benefits of recommended energy-efficiency measures and procedures including cost savings and impacts on health and comfort. This paper presents details on the checklist and information sheets and discusses their use in two affordable housing projects.

In both developed and developing countries around the world, the health of significant numbers of people is adversely affected by a lack of adequate housing. Large-scale migrations into already crowded developing nation cities compound existing health problems associated with poor indoor air quality, contaminated drinking water, and limited sanitation infrastructure. In the developed world, lead exposure, indoor air quality, and asthma are among the most serious and costly housing-related health risks.

Housing in early life and later mortality.  

PubMed Central

STUDY OBJECTIVES--The aim was to examine the influence of domestic crowding and household amenities in early life on later mortality from all causes and specifically from stomach cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and rheumatic heart disease. DESIGN--This was a retrospective cohort study of people whose houses had been surveyed in 1936 and whose household size was known from the 1939 census. Subjects were followed through the National Health Service Central Register from 1951 to 1989. SETTING--The housing survey had been carried out in the midland town of Chesterfield. SUBJECTS--Subjects comprised 8138 men and women born after 1900. RESULTS--A total of 2929 deaths were observed during the follow up period. All causes mortality in the full cohort was not consistently related to any of the housing variables examined, but among subjects who were still children at the time of the housing survey, death rates were higher in those whose houses were crowded or lacked a hot water tap. No associations could be shown between stomach cancer and domestic crowding or food storage facilities; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and domestic crowding or use of gas for cooking; or rheumatic heart disease and domestic crowding. There were few deaths from these causes, however, in subjects who were children at the time of housing survey. CONCLUSIONS--The findings suggest that the housing of young adults in Chesterfield during the 1930s had little effect on their later mortality. Further follow up of the cohort is needed before firm conclusions can be drawn about the influence of housing at younger ages.

Energy Efficient Industrialized Housing Research Program  

SciTech Connect

Six area reported progress in the Energy Efficient Industrialized Housing Research Program during FY 1991. As part of Industry Guidance, meetings were held with steering and technical committees in computers, housing design and manufacturing. This task area enables the program to benefit from the expertise of industry representatives and communicate research results directly to them. As part of the Design Process performance specifications were being developed for the future housing system designed last year. These house designs coordinate and optimize predicted and desirable advances in computerized design processes, materials, components, and manufacturing automation to achieve energy efficiency at reduced first cost. Energy design software were being developed for CAD systems, stressed skin insulating core panel manufacturers; and a prototype energy sales tool. A prototype design was to be developed to integrate one or more subsystems with the building skin. As part of the Manufacturing Process we are developing a manufacturing process simulation and data base to help current and new entrants to the industrialized housing industry in assessing the impact of implementing new manufacturing techniques. For Evaluation we are developing testing plans for six units of housing on the UO campus and the stressed skin insulating core house to be constructed in Oregon. The DOW Chemical test structure will be retrofitted with a tile roof and retested to compare to the dome and conventional construction structures. Calibration of the wind tunnel will be completed so that laboratory tests can be conducted to simulate the ventilation cooling efficiency of houses in design. Research utilization and program management were either aspects of this program.

Conservation value of clustered housing developments.  

PubMed

Traditionally, exurban lands in Colorado have been subdivided into a grid of parcels ranging from 2 to 16 ha. From an ecological perspective, this dispersed pattern of development effectively maximizes the individual influence of each home on the land. Clustered housing developments, designed to maximize open space, are assumed to benefit plant and wildlife communities of conservation interest. They have become a popular alternative for rural development despite the lack of empirical evidence demonstrating their conservation benefits. To better inform rural land-use planning, we evaluated clustered housing developments by comparing their spatial pattern with that of dispersed housing developments and by comparing their conservation value with that of both dispersed housing developments and undeveloped areas in Boulder County, Colorado. We used four indicators to assess conservation value: (1) densities of songbirds, (2) nest density and survival of ground-nesting birds, (3) presence of mammals, and (4) percent cover and proportion of native and non-native plant species. Clustered and dispersed housing developments did not differ on the majority of variables we examined. Both types of housing development had significantly higher densities of non-native and human-commensal species and significantly lower densities of native and human-sensitive species than undeveloped areas. More rigorous ecological guidelines and planning on a regional scale may help create clustered developments with higher conservation value. PMID:17002762
