OECD Regions at a Glance 2007

In many OECD countries home ownership is an important dimension of well-being. It protects owners from fluctuations in rents and ensures families a stable and secure shelter. In addition, the value of a property represents a major source of wealth for households. Differences in the rate of home ownership across OECD countries depend significantly on several factors, including rental subsidies, the existence of high-quality social housing and the deductibility of interest payments on loans from taxable income.

In most OECD countries the correlation between the home ownership rate and the share of population by type of region (urban, intermediate and rural) is negative for urban regions, where estate prices are higher. Only in Portugal, Greece, Australia and Spain is the correlation positive for urban regions. For rural regions, instead, the correlation is positive in most countries. In Australia the correlation is positive for both urban and rural regions, while in the United Kingdom the correlation is positive only for intermediate regions; it is negative for both urban and rural regions.
