Abstract: The objectives of this study were to (1) investigate the facilities available in mobile home units currently on the market and in existing public housing units in Greensboro, North Carolina, (2) evaluate these housing units for adequacy of space in relation to recommendations published by the American Public Health Association- Public Health Service, the Illinois Small Homes Council, and the Federal Housing Administration, (3) compare space adequacy and facilities of the two types of housing units evaluated. The lowest priced two, three, and four bedroom mobile home units were selected from each of the dealers in Greensboro, North Carolina. Data pertinent to the public housing units were obtained from blueprints of these units constructed by the Greensboro Public Housing Authority in each of the four developments having two, three, and four bedroom units. Twenty-one mobile homes and 12 public housing units were examined and data recorded on a checklist developed from selected published recommended housing standards.
