Linking household transitions and housing transitions: a longitudinal analysis of renters
In this paper I use discrete-time proportional hazards models of competing risks to assess the association between household transitions and housing transitions for individuals in the rental sector. Specifically, moves within the rental sector are treated as a competing risk with moves to homeownership. A series of longitudinal models indicates the differential role household transition serves in predicting each of these movement types. This research confirms the association between relative household stability, relative income level, and the move to homeownership. Conversely, homeownership remains unattainable for individuals with relatively low incomes, in relatively transient household types, and especially for minorities.
