Overall in 94 years, the percentage of rented houses declined steadily whereas that of the owned abodes increased. Also, the stark difference between the two shares was observed in the year 1918. However, both shares were equal in the year 1971
As shown in the chart, the portion of households ownership was only 23% in 1918 and increased steadily to reach about 65% in England, Wales by the year 2011. However, the years 1953 and 2001 witnessed a slight increment if at all, compared to the previous years reported.
