CPC seminar

Abstract: Partner relationships, residential relocations and housing are crucial to people's well-being and are known to be connected with each other. However, many aspects of this connection have remained under-researched. In this presentation, we aim to fill some of these knowledge gaps by showcasing findings from the PartnerLife project. For example, we show that separation leads to elevated mobility levels and that the risk of a move remains high even several years after separation in England and Wales. Additionally, we study housing tenure trajectories of separated men and women in Britain applying sequence analysis to data from the British Household Panel Survey.

About the CPC: Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the ESRC Centre for Population Change (CPC) is investigating how and why our population is changing and what this means for people, communities and governments. The Centre is a joint partnership between the Universities of Southampton, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, Stirling and Strathclyde. Our research agenda is planned in collaboration with the Office for National Statistics and the National Records of Scotland.

All future seminars and events will be advertised on the CPC website
