Union dissolution, residential mobility and housing in Britain

28th September 2017 1pm, Room 1/G/8, Ladywell House, Edinburgh

Partner relationships, residential relocations and housing are crucial to people's well-being and are known to be connected with each other. However, many aspects of this connection have remained under-researched. In this presentation, we aim to fill some of these knowledge gaps by showcasing findings from the PartnerLife project. For example, we show that separation leads to elevated mobility levels and that the risk of a move remains high even several years after separation in England and Wales. Additionally, we study housing tenure trajectories of separated men and women in Britain applying sequence analysis to data from the British Household Panel Survey.
