Discussion - People > Size of houses

These are comments that our moderators found as non-authoritative though possibly interesting for further discussion on People > Size of houses

 Benesj 19th May 2011 Ramin what you are saying is maybe true for "New Homes", but in general the sizes of the houses in UK are bigger than in France and especially Germany (in Germany the houses are very small-maybe the smallest that exist). I'm sorry Ramin but what you are saying is completely wrong(where you got this info??!?!?!) Ramin 6th February 2011 This is a 1000 % wrong statistics. The UK has the smallest house sizes in Europe and maybe among the world!!! The average House Size in France/Germany/Switzerland are about 2-3 times bigger. This is totally nonsense! aidan (uk) 9th January 2008 hi can u tell me the hight slope and area of japan and the sizes of there houses plzzzz Steve 26th June 2005 Having a dual citizenship for Canada and New Zealand, I have lived in both countries for extended periods of time, I want to point out the fact that the number of rooms doesnt really indicate the size a house. They typical 5 room house in New Zealand is small (maybe better to say tiny) compared to a 5 room house in Canada. A more accurate stat would be one showing the square meter age of homes.... Mike 4th June 2005 I live in Canada and I can tell anyone for sure that the average house is about 1600 sq ft. and we have a much higher rate of <900 sq ft. condo and apt. dwellers than in the US. I'm not sure how they calculated that figure, but any Canadian reading this can vouch that most of our homes are connected garden homes reminicent of the UK. KiwiTom 18th April 2005 Ian, although New Zealand does have a low GDP per capita nowadays, you must consider that between the 1940's and 1960's New Zealand was a very rich country on a per capita basis. In fact, in 1957, New Zealand had the highest per capita income in the world. A large proportion of our houses were built during those years, chiefly to accomodate a rapid increase in population commonly refered to as 'baby-boomers'. I admit the my country's econony is a shambles these days. We can't seem to get much right. High inflation, massive current account deficits (uninterrupted since 1973), low wages, negative household savings rate, tremendous overseas debt. It's quite depressing really.
