Online workshop, June 24th 2021, 13:30 – 15:30
Designing, implementing and evaluating housing policy requires robust, pertinent and up-to-date evidence about the interplay of population dynamics and housing markets. New sources and forms of consumer data provide an innovative resource for monitoring these dynamics more frequently and with greater local detail than when using conventional statistical sources alone.
This virtual afternoon workshop will showcase the value of consumer data research and derived data products for housing market analysis. The first part of the workshop will provide a succinct overview of consumer data research on key housing processes, including the interplay between residential and social mobility, rental market dynamics and household life cycle transitions through the housing stock. The second part of the workshop will introduce a new data visualisation interface designed to allow users to explore these findings.
The event will be of interest to those concerned with developing or implementing UK housing policy in local or central government, in housing associations or in the real estate industry. A provisional programme for the workshop is appended below. Full details, together with the workshop joining instructions and summary briefing notes will be circulated to successful registrants in the week prior to the event.
