This volume takes into account the difficulties created by the US census data being published in two separate categories: population and housing. It aims to give cross disciplinary investigations of population and housing an identity and a common name: housing demography. Essays commissioned especially for the volume address four main issues: household formation and composition; housing choices; housing construction and inventory change; and spatial patterns and consequences. From varied disciplinary vantage points, the authors seek to make explicit the complex interactions between housing stocks and population dynamics. Several propose far-reaching conceptual models: neighbourhood changes as related to life course changes in the population at large; the parallel between changes in the physical housing stock and mortality and morbidity processes in population analysis. Others focus on particular housing markets, such as Southern California, or upon particular segments of the population such as the elderly.
