In particular, in 1918, there was a big difference between the two categories, with owned houses to stand at just under a quarter and rented accommodation to reach a high of almost 76%. Furthermore, the proportion of owned and rented accommodation appeared to remain constant during 1939 and 1953, with approximately 30% and 68% respectively.
In 1961, owned households Stood at 40% and then, they followed a significant increase, reaching a peak of almost 70% in 2001.

Lastly, there was a small rebound at the last year, with rented houses rising to nearly 40% and owned houses representing just over 60%.
