Abstract [en]

Over the last decades, Sweden like most of the rest of Europe has experienced significant demographic changes due to aging population and influx of immigrants. Shifting composition of the population can be expected to affect housing construction in terms of housing tenure and total stock. While numerous studies have shown that there might be a dependence of demographic composition of the population and real estate construction, other studies have shown that this might be a result stemming from lack of control variables. This study sets out to analyze the relationship of demography and real estate construction, adding to the existing literature by differentiating between real estate construction in rental and owning sectors, as well as single- and multifamily sectors. We utilize a panel data set spanning from 1975 to 2005 that consists seven aggregated, self-contained regions of Sweden. Our preliminary findings suggest that the different estimates of the relationship between age categories of the population and housing construction is negligible. However, the difference in magnitude from younger persons between rental and non-rental multi-family housing construction is significant.
