Since it was legally constituted as a Civil Organization in 1990, Habitat México has developed into one of the largest Habitat programs in all of Latin America and the Caribbean.

A third of Mexico's population lacks access to decent housing conditions and more than 2.25 million people live in overcrowding, according to reports from the Secretariat of the Treasury and Credit (SHCP).

In their weekly report the agency indicated that the housing deficit in Mexico totals 9 million homes. These represent 31 percent of private inhabited dwellings, and involves 35.7 million people.

Per component, they observe that overcrowding is concentrated in 561 thousand homes, while 1.1 million dwellings are built with deteriorating materials and 7.3 million units have less than optimal conditions.

Despite this deficit, during the last couple of decades they have observed an improvement in the quality and furnishing of homes, according to the Inegi [National Institute of Statistics] Censuses of Population and Housing.
