In this chapter, the authors use the Journeys Home longitudinal data set to examine the relationship between housing insecurity and wellbeing. Using information on accommodation type, start date and duration of accommodation spells, the authors construct a sequence spanning some 2.5 years for 369 individuals, where similar sequences are grouped for analysis of individuals’ characteristics. The authors present a unique perspective with findings that are of significance for the many countries struggling with homelessness and ageing populations.
