Housing in Postwar Canada: Demographic Change, Household Formation, and Housing Demand

Front Cover
MQUP, Mar 1, 1988 - Political Science - 416 pages
The size of Canadian households has been declining since at least the 1880s. Miron compares this trend to patterns of household size in England and the United States and argues that postwar changes in household formation in Canada were the result of several forces including the postwar baby boom, increased longevity, changes in marriage pattern, rising incidence of divorce, increased household affluence, and new forms of government assistance to housing.
