Housing conditions in France2017 Edition
Consumption, wealth, family life, relations with neighbours and with the local neighbourhood: housing is at the centre of all our lives. With its detailed descriptions of households and their dwellings, the Housing Survey has been the key tool used by official statistics for 40 years, and the recent mobilisation of administrative sources now makes information available at a detailed territorial level.
In this new publication in the Insee Références collection, Housing conditions in France, the aim is to bring together this wealth of information and present it in a coherent form. An overview sets out the economic and social issues surrounding housing. Next, there are four reports. The first analyses the status of tenants. The second looks at home ownership. The third describes residential mobility and its determining factors. The fourth report takes stock of the housing of immigrant households.
Lastly, to complete the analyses, there are about forty information sheets, organised into 10 themes and produced jointly by the SOeS (Observation and Statistics Service) and INSEE.
Moving house? Residential mobility and its determining factorsInsee Références - Edition 2017
In France in 2013, about one in five households had moved house at least once between 2009 and 2013. However, this figure hides some wide disparities. The probability of moving main residence varies according to the occupancy status of the household: owner, tenant in the social or free sector. This mobility also depends on many structural factors, including the socio-demographic characteristics of the household, the local environment around the dwelling and the type of municipality in which they live. The effects of these factors on the probability of moving house differ according to the trajectory between the sector they are leaving and their destination.
