Housing units and households in the period 1375-1365, with average growth rates of 3.4 and 3.3, respectively, have been declining. Because it can reduce the rate of population growth and stagnation in the construction of residential units in the period cited. Sampling of the various reasons have difficulty providing housing for its residents.
