  • Abstract

    The primary investigator analyses the effects of political and social change on housing policy in the period from 1918 to 1965. By considering social and economic aspects on construction activity Schulz analyses possible consequences of political change on housing policy, especially in 1918/19, 1933 and 1945/1949. First a short chronological summary of the most important political characteristics of the housing policy is given for the Weimar Republic, for the period of National Socialism, and finally for the initial phase of the Federal Republic of Germany until the process of liberalization of the German hounsing policy in the mid of the sixties. The selected data on housing in Germany include the following time series (1918-1965): marriage, gross increase in homes, access to housing by means of new building, net increase per 10,000 inhabitants, dwellings per 1000 inhabitants, construction cost index, and consumer price index.
