A description of the size and structure of the categories of persons that could represent a target group for social housing
Praha: RILSA, 2015. 69 pp. - ISBN 978-80-7416-231-2

In the monograph, the authors endeavour to meet the requirement to determine the size and structure of households that could be a target group for social housing. In the absence of better empirical data are used two sets of data: the sample survey Living Conditions 2013 (EU-SILC 2013) and administrative data on recipients of social assistance.
The data used becomes the major limit of the analytical output as it does not allow to capture a significant part of the target group for social housing, especially, according to the ETHOS typology, „homeless people” and „people without a roof”.
The authors have created two analytical constructs of the target group for social housing. First, they are perceived as groups of persons or households being at risk of losing their homes due to insufficient income. Second, as a group of persons or households being excluded from the standard housing.
The first chapter introduces the structure of the whole population of the Czech Republic in terms of household types and tenure of housing. The second chapter deals with the structure of households according to the proportion of housing costs on their income. In the third chapter households at risk of losing their homes due to the combination of low incomes and high housing costs and also due to the emergence of debt related to housing are identified. This chapter is crucial to determining the target group for social housing. The last two chapters deal with the population of persons living in the substandard forms of housing and the distribution of substandard housing in the population.
