Ford, J., Rugg, J. and Burrows, R. (2002) Conceptualising the Contemporary Role of Housing in the Transition to Adult Life in England. Urban Studies, 39 (13). pp. 2455-2467. ISSN 0042-0980
This paper uses both survey and qualitative panel data collected from five different case-study areas in England in order to offer a conceptualisation of the contemporary role that housing is playing in the transition to adult life. The data suggest that the types of housing pathway that young people follow are a function of differences in the combination and intensity of three main factors: the ability of young people to plan for and control their entry to independent living; the extent and form of constraints that characterise their access to housing; and the degree of family support available to them. Based around these three dimensions (each of which is a continuum), the following ideal typical pathways can be identified: a chaotic pathway, an unplanned pathway, a constrained pathway, a planned (non-student) pathway and a student pathway.
