Researchers analyzed the relationship between health status and housing quality over time. Results suggested ecologic trends in childhood lead poisoning followed housing age, water leaks and ventilation; asthma follows ventilation, windows, and age; overweight trends follow ventilation; blood pressure trends follow community measures; and health disparities have not changed greatly. Except for childhood lead poisoning caused by lead-based paint, little progress has been made in reducing the health and housing disparities of disadvantaged groups.*
