Summary/Abstract: This study contains a post-adhering to European Union diagnosis of housing conditions. Statistics provided by the European Union Statistics Network, Eurostat, highlight the precariousness of housing quality, the main element of the quality of life. Statistical analysis of main housing quality indicators in the post-adhering period when our country gained the status of EU member indicate major differences between highly developed states and new Member States of this European structure, with particular problems in terms of standards development and thus quality of life.
