Abstract

Considered here are those variations among subgroups' abilities to adjust to household density. Social contexts which do not provide the individual with sufficient control over the dense home environment are defined. Items from a national survey are chosen to measure dissatisfaction with the dwelling, family relations, social life, and personal well-being. The results indicate that respondents in higher-density homes have more negative evaluations if they are mothers, have low social status in the household, or live with young children.
