On Gentrification: Renovations of Rental Housing and Socio-Economic Sorting

There is an ongoing debate in Sweden on to what extent renovations of rental housing properties forces certain individuals, via increased rents, to leave their apartments. Qualitative research indicates that this might indeed be the case. The purpose of this project is to use detailed register data on all renovations in Sweden from 1995 to 2014 and examine if renovations affect the socio-economic composition in the renovated properties.
