ABSTRACT

Housing welfare can be defined as the aggregate responsibility of fulfilling the basic needs and desires of the population in general in relation to housing. The final goal of the housing welfare policy is to satisfy the people's basic housing needs - affordable housing, decent housing - and improve the standard of housing welfare of both individual households and the entire nation, thereby, achieving social integration. It is, however, evaluated that current housing programs have several problems such as insufficient performance and inequitably distributed benefits, so they do not contribute enough to meeting the housing needs of policy target households. In the study, the households that should be given the first priority in the housing welfare policy are defined as the policy target households. The number of the policy target households is estimated primarily based on the housing needs of low-income households, considering the housing standards and housing affordability. And then, the policy target households are allocated to existing individual housing support programs according to their preferences and needs. Lastly, the study has estimated the amount of money required for meeting the housing needs of the policy target households by program. The results of this study can provide Korean housing policy makers with significantly useful information.
