Several people want to move, but cannot find a home

WoON is a three-year survey conducted by Statistics Netherlands and the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK). The number of respondents ranged from 47,000 in 2021 to 69,000 in 2012. The survey asked adults if they would like to move within two years. In 2021, 11 percent said they would definitely move, 23 percent might move. These percentages have been fairly stable since 2012. The group that wants to move but can’t find anything more than doubled. In 2015, almost 3 percent of those questioned gave that answer, in 2021 more than 6 percent. This corresponds to an increase from almost 400 thousand people in 2015 to almost 900 thousand in 2021.
