Analysis and action on living standards
Housing matters for family living standards both in the here and now, and in the future. Here, we provide national and regional indicators tracking housing tenure; the number of families with children living in the private rented sector; day-to-day housing costs; and the years needed to save for a typical deposit.
More of us are living in the private rental sector than ever before but this poses particular problems for some types of household. Families living in the private rental sector can find it more difficult to deal with the lack of security in their tenancies and the possibility of being required to move at short notice. We’re tracking the number of households with dependent children living in the private rental sector, across the different regions of the UK.
