  Abstract: The urban housing deficit is a problem that has afflicted Brazil since the revolution of 1930, with the displacement of a large part of the rural population to the cities. Due to this excessive urban sprawl, there was too much demand for housing that was not supplied by the market. Today, the government has been trying to alleviate this problem by organizing public policies in order to simplify the access of the low-income population to decent housing, such as the Programa Minha Casa Minha Vida (PMCMV), which promotes a financial facility for home ownership. However, mistaken works, without previous studies, often accompany this fact. These details can generate a poor performance of the building, with the manifestation of constructive pathologies that affect both the durability of the work and the comfort of its residents. In order to promote a data collection on this subject, a survey was carried out with the beneficiaries of the PMCMV, in order to attend to their main complaints regarding the degradation situation of the building. After the data collection, the aid of statistical software was essential for understanding the current situation in which these dwellings are located. The results showed that, among the elements that constitute a building, the structural and coating system are the most affected, in addition, it was also possible to analyze through statistical analysis that such pathological manifestations are usually derived from constructive or design errors, those caused by use on a smaller scale.
