and
More than half or 59 per cent of the total population
live in an owner-occupied dwelling, but the share
varies by age. The largest shares are seen among per-
sons aged 50 and 70 years, where close to 70 per cent
live in an owner-occupied dwelling. It is only with re-
spect to the 20-32-year-olds and persons aged 80
years and over that there is a greater share living in
rented dwellings than owner-occupied dwellings.
There is more and more room for activities in Danish
dwellings. Since 1980, the average dwelling area per
person in occupied dwellings has increased from 43
m² to 52 m2 in 2013. This is especially due to the fact
that Danish dwellings have become larger. The aver-
age dwelling area has increased from 106 in 1980 to
111 m2 in 2013. Another reason is that more people
live alone. The average household size has decreased
from 2.7 persons in 1970 to 2.1 persons in 2013.
Today, there are more than 1 million one-family
houses and 1 million apartments in Denmark. Conse-
quently, they are the preferred type of ownership.
The greatest relative increase has occurred for ter-
raced houses. Today, Denmark has about 400,000 of
these types of dwellings, which is more than a tre-
bling since 1970.
DWELLING
A dwelling has its own address, and is intended for
or used for habitation.
