The pie charts illustrate the number of houses owned and rented in the UK in 1991 and 2007.


Overall, homeowners were the most popular typing housing, with more than half the total over the period shown. In addition, the number of people with private renting was stable, whereas the figures for social renting and social housing experienced a decrease.


In 1991, more than 50% of people were homeowners, which is double the figure of those who have community renting. In the next sixteen years, this number increased significantly by 10% in 2007.


In contrast, social renting witnessed a downward trend, falling from 25% in 1991 to 15% in 2007. In terms of the other popular typing housing, the percentage of privately rented homes remained unchanged at 10%. However, there were 5 million more homes in 2007 compared with 1991, so the number of rented homes had increased despite the same percentage. 


Meanwhile,  there was a drop in the total of social housing, which fell from 15% in 1991 to 5% in 2007.
