A place to live in? : the fluctuations in rental costs between 1999 - 2007 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to present and analyze the yearly expenses for Swedish rental apartments during the period 1999 to 2007. At the end, it will give the reader a general picture of how the cost-level has fluctuated depending on the production year when the apartment building was finished, and where the same building is located. This paper has the following questions as a starting point:

- Can there be an identification of regions depending on where people tend to favor renting an apartment?

- How are those regions distributed? That is, where are the cost-levels of the yearly rental expenses highest and where are the levels lowest?

Nine statistical surveys from the Swedish government agency Statistics Sweden (Statistiska Centralbyrån) have been used as primary sources for this paper. These surveys deal with price pictures of housing in general, but for this paper the only information that has been used is the one about rental apartments. After analyzing the acquired data it can be established that the highest rental level is found in Stockholm, after that come Göteborg, which is followed by Larger municipalities and at the bottom Smaller municipalities can be observed as having the lowest amount of yearly rental expenses. There could also be observed two major raises in the rental expenses that were common in all four geographical categories in addition to the more even, but substantially smaller, raises that could be observed during the surveys course. The earliest raise could be found in the apartment buildings that were produced in Stockholm after the 1940-s. The same pattern could be followed in Smaller municipalities, Göteborg and Larger municipalities the following decades. The second major raise occurred in a simultaneous similar way in the apartment buildings that were produced during the 1980-s. In this case three of the regions that were in the survey, Stockholm, Göteborg and Large municipalities were found to have an unusual amount of raises in the rental expenses during this decade. The exception were Small municipalities whose rental expenses did not experience the same raise as the other categories in the apartment buildings that were produced until the first part of the 1990-s. The rental levels that were extracted from the surveys made by Statistics Sweden are found as an appendix in the end of this paper.
