Where the different sectors have very different and clearly demarcated roles, the gap will be relatively large. 1, we do not suggest a formula for estimating the relative importance of the items in the table, it is clear that the method of allocating rented housing is of crucial importance. Allocation systems are usually the key source of differences between the sectors. This follows from our definition of social housing as housing which is allocated according to need rather than demand based on ability to pay.

2 these sorts of differences and their effect on the gap between the sectors are summarised. These differences in the purpose of each housing sector, allocation systems, rent controls and regulations, the regulation and supervision of landlords, subsidies, and their outcomes in terms of the socio-economic profiles of tenants and the movement of tenants between sectors, are discussed in turn. The purpose of each housing sector The purpose of the social rented sector in particular varies between countries.

In another scenario, the dwelling types will vary markedly between the sectors; with perhaps one sector dominated by high-quality housing located in high-status neighbourhoods, while in the other sector lower-quality accommodation located in down-market neighbourhoods predominates. It is also quite likely that there will be some variety within each sector, with a variety of dwelling types and quality in the two sectors. In this case, rents may reflect quality and possibly consumer preferences in both sectors, and another possibility is that rents are very low with respect to quality in one sector and relatively high in the other.
