Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyse the joint effect that economic and demographic factors of Spanish society have over household behaviour regarding decisions about their dwelling. We carry out an empirical analysis of two aspects of housing, tenure and kind of building (single-family or not), and for that purpose we use the multinomial logit and nested multinomial logit discrete choice models. This analysis was carried out separately for households living in rural and urban areas in order to compare differences in behaviour regarding their decisions. En este trabajo se analiza el comportamiento de los hogares españoles frente a decisiones sobre la vivienda. Se estudia el efecto conjunto de los factores económicos y demográficos en la elección del régimen de tenencia (propiedad y alquiler) y tipo de edificio en el que está ubicada la vivienda (unifamiliar o no unifamiliar); para ello se utilizan los modelos de elección discreta logit multinomial y logit multinomial anidado. El análisis se realiza para dos submuestras, los hogares que residen en un ámbito urbano y los que residen en un ámbito rural, ello permitirá comparar las preferencias de los hogares de ambos ámbitos.
