The main determinants of the demand for

housing are demographic in nature . Some of the important demographic variables are as follows : 1 population growth , 2 ) population density , 3 ) male to female ratio (sex ratio , 4 ) educational attainment , 5 ) class , and 6 ) mortality rates Other non-demographic variables like income , cost and availability of credit , consumer preferences , prices of substitutes and complements , and the general price of housing also play important roles in assessing the demand for housing . The general dependent variable , in this case , is the available housing units provided by the market

The supply for housing is determined by variables like land , labor , and other inputs . The cost of the above-mentioned inputs , the stock price of housing units , and the level of technology generally determine the quantity of housing units that real-estate firms supply to the market The pubic sector is also active in dispensing housing units to private individuals .
