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.
Housing tenure is a key determinant of housing costs and security. Over the past two decades we’ve seen a shift towards the private rental sector, with young people likely to remain renters for much longer than previously. The data here looks at these changes across age groups and the regions and nations of the UK.

A family is a single adult or couple, and any dependent children. 18 year olds that live with parents and are not full-time students are not counted as separate family units and do not appear in these statistics. These people are likely to be in education at sixth form or college, and so are still ‘dependent children’.
