An examination of the relationships between household characteristics and housing choices in Brown County, Wisconsin, at the onset of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment in 1974, based on the premise that a household's demographic configuration, as measured by its stage in the life cycle, powerfully conditions its housing choices. Data from the experiment's baseline survey of 3,722 renter and owner households indicate a strong and consistent relationship between life-cycle stage and size and type of housing unit occupied. The frequency and types of moves and the reasons for moving, based on mobility histories of individual respondents to the survey, support the conclusions of the cross-sectional analysis.
