Housing Costs

Trying to build a time series showing cost of housing as a proportion of income.

The facts aren’t easy to  find, and the graphing technique isn’t easy either, given the income distribution range and the geographic income and house pricing diversity.

I used a google search on housing costs as a proportion of income trend, which finds nothing obvious on the first page. I have also checked out the ONS site, and their Housing and Households page which has House Prices Report, on further inspection on the data tab  there is a Housing Prices report which has  historical data and table 28 may be what I need. ONS refers to DCLG

I also moved onto the FRS which is now at the DWP site.

Researching demand, I ran a google search on “london is the world’s top city for multi-millionaires”, I was looking for a sepcific City AM article, which I found, it seems the article was based on a report by a London Consultancy called Wealthinsight and was probably handled better at the Guardian where they have widget on their datablog.
