Given some recent announcements on social (public) housing provision in New Zealand, I have graphed the changes in tenure since 1991 to the start of the current Labour-coalition (now majority) administration (2016-current). This will resonate against the global housing tenure trajectory.

A visual view of an emerging Generation Private-Rent. Reading right to left, here we see the relatively small change in social (public) housing provision sitting at around 3-4% (in grey). Plus an increase over the period of private rented units (in orange), taken as largely a tenure shift away from owner-occupied units (in blue). Your take on this is no doubt a matter of perspective. Would be interested in your thoughts.
