''Intergenerational transmission of homeownership decisions in Spain''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.1 )
The aim of this paper is to analyze whether parents' decision about owning one's own dwelling may be an important determinant of the future homeownership decisions of their children in Spain. To address this issue, we use data from the Survey of Living Conditions (2011). Our results confirm the intergenerational transmission of homeownership decisions in Spain, in such a way that the probability that the respondent owns their home is determined, although not exclusively, by their parents' homeownership decision.
Keywords: Homeownership, Intergenerational Transmission, Spain
