The project aims to generate knowledge about young people’s establishment in the housing market, including moving out from their parental home, experiences in the rental market, and establishment as homeowners.
How young people experience the transition to their own housing can have implications for their life chances in later life. Therefore, understanding how the young population uses and adapts to the housing market is important for understanding young adults’ transition to adulthood and how potential policies can contribute to improving this transition.
Data for the project are collected from the NorLAG survey, Young in Norway survey, Living Conditions Survey, and Inequality in Youth project. Additionally, a qualitative data collection will be conducted to illuminate the experiences of first-time buyers in the housing market.
