This analytical report on housing characteristics and amenities presents data from the 2015 Population and
Housing Census covering approximately 205,000 private households in Timor-Leste. The report explores general
demographic characteristics, female headed households, construction materials used for walls, floors and roof,
fuels used for cooking and lighting, as well as access to drinking water and sanitation. These indicators, when
compared over time, allow for measuring progress towards improving the living conditions of the population, as
well as towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015.
