Social housing figures for Paris, 2013
This note gives the main figures for social housing in Paris. It updates information on the social housing stock and how it is developing, as well as on the demand for housing.
On January 1st, 2012, there were 200,993 units of SRU social housing, comprising 17.4% of principal residences in Paris. The official number of social housing units for January 1st, 2013 is not yet available, however, given the programmes of social housing units delivered in 2012, (4,765 units), it should be possible to reach 205,758 units of SRU social housing, i.e. 17.8% of principal residences on January 1st, 2013.
In 2012, 6,092 new social housing units were financed in Paris. The number of housing units financed a year has grown continuously over the last ten years and, since 2007, more than 6,000 units have been financed every year. Set against this increase, the already high number of requests for social housing is climbing in comparison with previous years: in 2012, 139,985 households renewed or filed a first application with the City of Paris, of which 105,750 were already living in Paris. The total number of registered requests has gone up (+ 10.6% compared to 2011).
Nearly 12,000 households were accommodated in Paris in 2012. Over a third of these allocations came from the City of Paris housing organisations contingency reserve of housing stock (33.2%), and almost one allocation in five was made following selection by the Paris Prefecture from the reserve of 25% social and 5% civil servants quotas (19.1%). The other units were allocated directly from the quotas of the (UESL)- Union of Businesses and Employees for Housing- ‘collecteurs du 1%’-, and from State reserves for civil servants outside the 5% quota.
