Regional Disparities in Leaving Home

Based on register data of Statistics Netherlands for the period 2012-2016 the process of leaving home has been analyzed. The micro-data file contains data on all children of the Netherlands with respect to demographic characteristics and the housing situation (before and after having left). The analyses focus on spatial differentials in the process of leaving home, in relation to regional differences in the housing market. For this purpose regression models will be applied for the analyses of both the timing of home leaving (distinguished into nest leavers going to live alone and to those going to live with a partner) and the first housing destination of nest-leavers.
