This chapter examines the contemporary trends in first housing transitions and puts these movements within the context of a generation that is increasingly mobile with respect to labour market attachment, social values, and the locations where they live. It reveals that the present generations of young people are much more likely to experience homelessness, both because of changes which affect their generation and those that affect their parents'. The chapter concludes that how young people first enter the housing market affects their longer-term outcomes and creates the conditions for housing success or failure later in life.

Keywords:   housing transitions, labour market attachment, social values, locations, young adults, homelessness, housing market
