    Abstract

    In this paper new findings on the average life expectancy of the population of Britain are reported according to housing wealth. In addition, estimates of mortality rates for rough sleepers, hostel residents, and bed and breakfast residents are presented. The results indicate that the death rates of bed and breakfast residents are four to five times those of the housed population, death rates for hostel residents are seven times greater, and death rates for rough sleepers are 25 times greater than those of the housed population. At the extremes, people living in the most salubrious housing in Britain (holding over �100 000 of equity in their properties) can expect to live, on average, more than twice as long as those sleeping rough on the streets.
