British central government policy regarding the size and design of residential homes for the elderly has changed direction a number of times in the post-war period. Employing data collected in the Census of Residential Accommodation of 1970, the effectiveness of these policy changes is analysed in a multiple regression framework. The results suggest that Central and Local Authority policies have been only partially successful in ensuring minimum standards of design and cast considerable doubt upon the efficacies of converting private dwellings into residential homes. © 1977.
