The article contains an analysis of quantitative changes in the process of improvement of housing conditions with provisions made for the influence of housing construction on changes in housing situation of Łódź in the period of 1960-1975. In the period under review there was observed a considerable increment in the number of rooms and flats as well as improvement in equipment of flats with basic amenities and installations. There must be also pointed out a decrease in density index of flats and increase of the average number of rooms per flat. In the period of 1971-1975 there was observed a considerable expansion of housing construction in relation to previous years (in the past five - year period there were constructed almost as many rooms and flats as over the period of 1961-1970 jointly). Full implementation of the housing construction plan over the years 1961-1975 promoted a marked improvement of housing conditions of the population and brought about essential changes in the size and structure of housing resour-ces in Łódź. In the period under survey the number of flats increased by 76,5 thousand, while the number of rooms by 314.4 thousand. There was also observed a big increase in the number of housing resources belonging to the co-operative sector. The source of th is increase lies in changes of financing of the housing construction consisting in wider application of the population's own resources in solution of the housing problem. It should be noted here that the process of satisfaction of housing needs reflected in improvement of the population's housing conditions is a continuous process closely connected with the pace of the socio-economic development of the country.
