Abstract.This article is focused on one of the most important issues in the study of the everyday life of urban populations: the housing and municipal issue. The author analyzes the life of the urban population in general, and the provision of housing in the cities of Karakalpakstan in the period from the 1960s to the 1980s in particular. A description of the state of housing and communal services during the period under study is given. The author also identifies the main problems of this industry, as well as attempts at improving the household and housing spheres of urban residents. In addition, this work is based on the principles of a critical interpretation of sources, systematization and comparative analysis of data. The methodology of this work is constructed on local material. The use of the local approach requires a concentration of research attention on the particularities of the development of housing and communal problems of a specific region, in this case, of Karakalpakstan during the indicated period. The scientific novelty of this research lies in that for the first time in the Russian historiography an analysis of the history of housing and communal policy in Karakalpakstan during the period of the 1960s - 1980s was carried out, based on the study of archival and statistical data. On the basis of detailed statistics, the author examines the problems of the social sphere of the region and ways of their resolution by the republican authorities.
