Housing Tenure and Psychological Distress
Housing policies in a number of European countries promote homeownership for low income households. Previous economic research on mental health seems to indicate that homeownership is positively related to better health outcomes, but little research has been undertaken on the relationship between homeownership and psychological distress. The present study attempts to fill some of this gap by deploying a rich set of controls and a range of regression methods using data from three Danish living conditions surveys. A negative connection between homeownership and psychological distress is found, especially for the low income group.
