House or flat: where do you live?

In 2019, 46% of the EU population lived in flats, while just over a third (35%) of the population lived in detached houses and almost one fifth (19%) lived in semi-detached or terraced houses.

Flats were the most common residence type in 14 Member States, notably in Latvia (where 66% of people lived in flats), Spain (65%) and Estonia (61%). Member States with the smallest share of their population residing in flats were Ireland (8%) and the Netherlands (21%).
