Housing Cost Burden in Salzburg: Causes and Solutions

The project sheds light on the high housing cost burden in Salzburg and illustrates the consequences for the affected households and for the housing market in Salzburg. The primary question of the study is how the high housing cost burden in Salzburg can be reduced. Answering this question about possible options for action requires a diagnosis of the situation in Salzburg's housing market in order to distinguish between different problem situations. The differentiation of cost drivers is central for housing policy insofar as different economic policy measures have to be taken depending on the cause.
