    Aging population will also help to keep the averages down (more elderly = more one or two people households). It is what is happening at the margins that is important, and I suspect you are right Bjauck.

    From the pdf...."In light of all the factors that determine the level of building, including new housing costs, what has been built largely reflects demand. This isn't the same thing as saying there aren't lots of people living in unsatisfactory housing conditions." (my emphasis)
