Low Income Home Owners in Wales by Professor Roger Burrows (Assistant Director, Centre for Housing Policy, University of York)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This report presents a unique analysis of Low-income home-owners in Wales, documenting the level of home-ownership in relation to levels of income. Drawing on an extensive statistical analysis of the Welsh House Condition Survey, the report highlights the high level of home-ownership in Wales compared to other parts of the UK, despite relatively low levels of average incomes. While the report focuses primarily on the extent and characteristics of Low-income home-owners in Wales, it also presents the results in the context of earlier English, Scottish and Welsh analyses and draws out both common and divergent characteristics of the Low-income home-owner sector in each country. It presents a critique of 'official' poverty measures and has key implications for Welsh housing policy.
