Housing focuses on our daily living environment, including housing costs, energy consumption and indoor climate. Housing is the responsibility of municipalities.
Consideration is given to whether
- housing is accessible to all;
- dwellings satisfy modern energy and safety requirements.
Housing statistics reflect the number of dwellings and the change over time. Housing statistics serve as the basis for housing policy-making.
