Abstract [en]

This chapter employs a broader interpretation of social housing, encompassing policies that focus on households with low incomes or major problems competing on the open market. The population in Sweden is divided into four groups. These are discussed in the chapter. Then the chapter provides an overview of the tenure forms in Sweden and how these have developed, as well as a description of the Swedish system of rent-setting as this is important for understanding the country's housing market. 'MHCs in Sweden' describes the MHCs and how their role has developed. The housing allowance is paid by the central government and administered by the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, which also handles other transfer payments like sickness benefit and benefits for the disabled. The allowance system has two strands, one for older people and one for households with children.
