This indicator expresses the percentage of respondents -- house renters only -- feeling "secure". For the PRIndex nine-country pilot study, respondents’ perceptions of their tenure security were assessed using the following two questions:
Question 1: Do you think it is at all possible that you, personally, could lose the right to live in this home against your will in the next five years? “Against your will” means you are not given a choice and you have to stop living in this home.
Question 2: [If “yes” to question 1] Do you think this will probably happen in the next five years, or not?
The results are used to place owners and renters in each country into three tenure security categories:
- Secure: Those who simply answer “no” to the first question, indicating they do not believe it is possible they could lose the right to live in their home against their will in the next five years. These respondents were not asked the second question above. Those who said they don’t know or did not answer this question were removed from the results, while those who said it is possible moved on to question 2.
- Somewhat insecure: Those who said it is possible that they could lose the right to live in their homes against their will in the next five years, but that it is not probable (i.e., they said “no” to the second question), or who say it is possible but are unsure whether or not it is probable (i.e., they said “don’t know” or did not respond to the second question).
- Very insecure: Those who said it is both possible and probable that they will lose the right to live in their homes in the next five years.
