For the past 20 years, the number of households living in overcrowded conditions has risen in Métropole du Grand Paris. This study draws up the profile of households concerned and sheds light on the main underlying reasons. 

Over-occupancy and more generally the comfort of housing appears as a major social and human issue at a time when, the health crisis linked to COCID-19 kept 67 million French people under lockdown, 7 million of which live in Grand Paris and were confined to their homes.
