In this chapter we used data from waves 8 to 10 (1998-2000) of the British Household Panel Survey to investigate intra-household differences in neighbourhood attachment and their relationships with health. Specifically, the sample contained 2,328 couples who were married in 1998 when a module of questions concerned with attachment and feelings about their neighbourhood were asked. A scale of neighbourhood attachment was constructed using six items from the module and this, along with the individual items, was used to identify differences in neighbourhood attachment within households between spouses. The health outcomes used were common mental illness derived from the 12-item General Health Questionnaire and poor self-rated health derived from a single Likert-type item.
