Spicer, Keith, Diamond, Ian and Ní Bhrolcháin, Máire (1992) Into the 21st century with British households [in special issue: Population Forecasting] International Journal of Forecasting, 8, (3), pp. 529-539. (doi:10.1016/0169-2070(92)90062-E).

Record type: Article


The future number and type of households is of vast importance in determining not only the necessary number of housing units but also provision for services such as home help. This paper takes General Household Survey (GHS) data at the micro level and ages these households by simulation to the year 2001. Differing scenarios are considered in order to accommodate high and low variants of each household type in the British household distribution.
