Rutgers research highlights housing inequities in New Jersey

April 23, 2020

The Facts and Findings report, “Housing Instability and Health-Related Housing Quality in New Jersey,” details the results of the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy’s latest New Jersey Health and Well-Being Poll, conducted in 2019.

“Research clearly shows that housing is a major social determinant of health. Housing instability and poor quality housing are major stressors that can lead to declining health and lower quality of life,” said Joel C. Cantor, professor of policy at the Bloustein School, center director, and the report’s senior investigator.
