Volume 1: Social housing demand and supply

The study describes the supply of social housing within the boundaries of Paris and analyses the characteristics of applicant households: period since application registered, geographic origins, profile (family make-up, income, professional situation, age) and housing conditions.   

The 2020 publication includes two important new elements:

  • The analysis of “priority” housing applicants, as defined by the State, based on Ile-de-France DRIHL (Regional and Interdepartmental Department of Housing and Accommodation) data published for the first time in 2019 (database “Access to housing and eviction prevention”) which enables this sub-population of housing applicants to be described. 
  • An analysis of how the population of housing applicants has evolved over a long period of time (1995-2018). This makes it possible to study the development of the number of applicants, the occupational status of applicant households, the make-up of families, the size of applicant households, and the income level of applicants. 

The data analysed in the present study are accessible via a specifically dedicated interactive tool

Volume 2 of the study is devoted to housing allocated during the years 2017 and 2018 and will be published in the second semester of 2020.
