Future Need and Demand for Housing in Wales

This report by the Public Policy Institute for Wales presents new estimates of the need and demand for housing in Wales over the period 2011 to 2031.

It provides two propositions which suggest that between 174,000 and 250,000 new homes will be required over this period, of which over 35% will need to be affordable.

It also recognises that the majority of older people live in 'market' housing, in other words, are homeowners and provides useful details about their household composition.
