The map shows the housing condition in the Arctic regions in 2016.
The pie charts represent the share of own and rented dwellings. Green indicates the share of privately-owned dwellings and blue indicates the share of publicly-owned dwellings.
Favourable rental conditions are often in connection with employment. Nunavut (Canada), Greenland, Svalbard (Norway), and in Chukotka (Russian Federation) were the regions with clear dominance of renter-occupied dwellings. Other regions have a dominance of owner-occupied dwellings. In Krasnoyarsk, Khanty-Mansi and Sakha (Russian Federation) over 85 % of the apartments are privately-owned. Permafrost thaw is likely to destabilise housing infrastructure across the Arctic and the financial impact will differ depending on whether it is public or private ownership.
