This paper examines the association between housing tenure mix and health outcomes for urban residents living in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. For specific health issues, particular types of neighbourhood had significantly different outcomes: areas with a sizeable social renting sector for self-reported health; areas with a sizeable social- or private-renting sector for accidents; and areas dominated by social renting for alcohol-related illnesses. It concludes that adjustments might lead to improvements in some health outcomes: improved mental health and reduced smoking, via a reduction in area deprivation; and reduced alcohol-related illnesses due to possible effects of tenure mix on material context and culture
