This report compares the housing outcomes achieved by different generations over the life course and assesses the extent to which intergenerational inequalities exist when it comes to security, to affordability and to quality. It explores how the housing experience of each generation has been determined by demographics, policy and the market alike. This report also looks to the future, recognising that housing tenure by mid-life can have a significant bearing on our living standards not just in the here and now but also over the entire span of our lives. So what do we find when we take a long, hard look at housing across the generations?
