Housing, or more generally living spaces, refers to the construction and assigned usage of houses or buildings collectively, for the purpose of sheltering people — the planning or provision delivered by an authority, with related meanings.

Many governments have one or more housing authorities, sometimes also called a housing ministry, or housing department. (Full article...)
