This chapter reviews the published work that explains the changing relationship between households and the dwellings in which they live over their life course. It starts with a section on the role of risk within contemporary society. This is followed by an examination of the debates around housing careers, housing histories, housing biographies, and housing pathways. It is concluded that there is a need to recast one's thinking around this issue, and that, in the twnety-first century, it has become more appropriate to consider the way people move through the housing stock as a set of transitions which embrace both permanent and temporary relocation, as well as the simultaneous occupancy of multiple dwellings.

Keywords:   households, role of risk, published work, housing careers, housing histories, housing biographies, housing pathways, housing stock, relocation
