Housing Research Notes

Housing Research Notes are a series of analytical reports from the Greater London Authority focusing on individual issues of relevance to housing policy in London.

The most recent Housing Research Note (published in February 2021) uses English Housing Survey data to examine patterns and trends over time in housing floorspace per person in London and England, including comparisons between different groups by tenure, age and ethnicity. Changes in floorspace per person are disaggregated into changes in dwelling sizes and household sizes. The report also compares floorspace per person at the local authority and international levels.

Previous Housing Research Notes have provided analysis of data on housing supply in London; a review of Help to Buy policy; a comparison of housing in London with New York, Paris and Tokyo; an analysis of short-term and holiday letting in London; and an examination of intermediate housing in London. The published Housing Research Notes (along with accompanying datasets, where available) are on the London Datastore here.
