''Why does the queue keep growing? The relationship between migration and rental housing queues in Sweden''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.2 )
The Swedish rental market is uniquely formed in that a rental queue system exists, rather than a free rental market. Meanwhile, migration continues to be relevant and evolving in the Swedish context. This paper investigates the relationship between international and internal migration on the rental queue, both on the general level, and in the Stockholm context. Findings suggest that foreign-born migration is consistently impactful across all dimensions, where as certain forms of internal migration are more impactful in the localized Stockholm context only.
Keywords: immigration; internal migration; housing; rental market; rental queue
