Household formation and tenure decisions among the 1985 birth cohort

Pamela Di Salvo, John Ermisch, Heather Joshi

The formation and breakup of households among young people have long been recognised as having an important impact on the housing market and the planning of social housing.

These effects have been difficult to study, however, as analyses have not previously been able to track individuals through time. In this study, Pamela Di Salvo, John Ermisch and Heather Joshi examined the household formation and tenure paths followed by the cohort of Britons who form the National Child Development Study (NCDS), from 1974 when they turned 16 until they were 33 in 1991.
