Determinants of Homeownership in Denmark

Publikation: Working paperForskning

Resumé

Determinants of the probability of homeownership are analysed using a 20 per cent random

sample of Danish homes with data covering characteristics of both the homes and their

inhabitants. The sample data are from the beginning of the year 2004 and the analysis is based on

a logistic regression. The paper adds to earlier papers by the same authors where determinants of

the homeownership rate were found using (average) data for 270 Danish municipalities. By

using data directly related to individual households whose inhabitants have chosen to be or not to

be homeowners, the analysis reveals characteristics and restrictions that influence the choice

between renting and ownership. Among the determinants investigated is civil and social status of

the breadwinner and various household characteristics including income. The empirical results

generally suggest that the impact of the determinants corresponds to theory.
