    How liveable are homes in the UK?

    Hey all,

    I am writing a dissertation on how liveable homes are (in the UK) and have to get some more responses for a survey.

    If anyone has a spare 3 mins (max) and from the UK could they please fill it in?

    http://esurv.org/online-survey.php?s...BEIJO_528bf7fd

    The dissertation is looking out how liveable homes are currently in the UK with a view to improving this for the future.

    Thanks again!

    I've heard they are so bad people can't live in them at all and instead choose to live on the streets or in bed and breakfast style inns.

    For your questions,

    Q3, the Northern England a big divide between the North, North East & North West 3 very different areas .
    Q8, most UK homes are advertised at how many bedrooms, i.e. 1,2,3,4 etc actual floor space isn't really considered as other countries do. Also missing any question about garages, this is a selling point for houses, although unless you have a car from the 1920's they are all used for storage now as cars are far to wide to fit into a standard garage.
    Q18 Could do with adding factors like schools, how close to a shopping/supermarkets & transport links. Not sure what Not-Restricted, Protection or Rich Materiel (You will find most UK houseing is built using local materiels so varies throughout the country) mean in this context

    Based on this, living conditions in Yorkshire have improved.

    The Engerlandermen bopped my great great great great great great great great grandpa jsharr on his head or gave him 7 too many beers and put him on a boat and told him he was in the army. When he got to the United States of America to be, he quit their stupid dumb ol army and started fighting for Uncle US Sam and the United States Army to be.

    They gave him some land and then his kids got some land in Ohio and then that guy and his kid got some land in The Republic of Texas and we live there now.

    I am not sure anyone still lives in the UK. I think they all became American after we beat them in the Civil War of 1812.

    Funny map - the only thing I would change is that most of the USA should also be green...Alaska not so much...
