Purpose: In this study, we examine the housing outcomes of natives and multiple generations of non-natives using a longitudinal survey data in Britain. Design/methodology/approach We use longitudinal data from Britain, in which we can observe multiple generations of immigrants and their demographic and economic information. Findings The probability models for housing tenure reveal significant variation in the outcomes which are robust to several econometric specifications. Research limitations/implications Since migration and its impact on local economy is highly debated topic across several major regions of the world, the findings bring out important insights with policy implications. The research is limited by the sample size of the longitudinal survey. Originality/value The empirical evidence on the topic is quite limited with mixed findings. Especially, our ability to look through multiple generations is unique in identifying the variation in housing outcomes for the native and non-native citizens.
