The data from the publication of the Institute of Statistics, “Albania in Figures” show that the trend of private houses in Albania continues to grow throughout 2020. The figures show that in 2020, 74.1% of families in our country live at home private, while in 2019 their percentage was 72.7%.
This indicator has increased by 1.9 percentage points, while we recall that it increased by up to 1.5 percentage points in 2019 as well, compared to 2018. The percentage of families living in private homes during 2020 is the highest since 2015, which was 75.4%. On the other hand, the data show that the percentage of families living in a building with up to 15 apartments has dropped to 14.1% from 15.2% in 2019.
The percentage of families that live in apartments with more than 15 apartments is also decreasing. The decrease is recorded at 0.5 percentage points from 12% during 2019 to 11.5% during 2020. This increase over the past two years may be due to the population shifting to the suburbs over the past few years and the trend of luxury homes
