Housing


The UK’s housing market is not delivering for low-to-middle income families. Families are spending more of their income on housing and getting less for their money; fewer families are enjoying the security of home ownership or a social rented tenancy, with millions more living in the insecure private rented sector; and house prices have surged relative to incomes. Our work focuses on understanding the causes and impact of these developments, and on the appropriate policy responses.

Our housing data is available as an interactive data dashboard.

Housing Outlook Q1 2020

Continue Reading

As we enter a new decade in which both the politics and economics of housing look set to be centre stage, this quarterly publication will be tracking all the key trends as the 2020s unfold. We will be keeping an eye on the housing market, and the way that housing intersects with both living standards and policy developments. This quarter, we begin with a look at house prices and ask whether the ‘levelling up’ we observe across the country since 2016 is at an end, or if the process still has further to run.
