We here at the Housing Agency have carried out research on a wide range of different aspects of housing. This includes housing for specific groups (travellers, older people and people with a disability), housing tenure (private rented, social and owner occupied) and housing market (supply, demand, place, design). The Housing Agency also carries out an annual survey on tackling the issue of unfinished housing developments.

If you are looking for something in particular or if there is a knowledge gap in terms of a specific area, where you think there is a need for research, please get in touch email: info@housingagency.ie
