The aim of this paper is to contribute to the discussion on how satisfaction with different aspects of indoor environment contributes to occupants' overall satisfaction. The analysis is based on survey responses collected during a unique project commissioned by The Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning. The results are representative of adults living in multi-family buildings in Sweden. The analysis shows that generally satisfaction with air quality has the highest impact on occupants' overall satisfaction. The occurrence of problems with indoor environment quality, particularly draught, dust and too low indoor temperature may affect occupants' overall satisfaction. However, it is demonstrated that the importance impact of perceived indoor environment quality on overall satisfaction is affected by individual and building characteristics.
