The housing career describes the succession of housing states, events, and transitions that individuals experience over time. The structure of housing careers is influenced by the trajectory of people's lives, their links to other individuals, and the contextual opportunities and constraints they encounter. The life‐course perspective provides a rich framework for conceptualizing and examining housing careers and the ways in which these may be changing over time.
