HOUSING CHOICES context measure

Two ways of measuring the composition of housing development are by housing type and house tenure. Housing types include ground-oriented dwellings (houses, townhouse), apartments, and row houses. Housing tenure means whether the dwelling unit is owned (freehold or condominium) or rented. Having a diversity of housing by type and tenure ensures residents have access to housing suitable and desirable to their life stage and income.
