Abstract
The document describes the methodology for estimating the nationwide distribution of residential duration (i.e., years spent living in a single residence). The methodology uses a Monte Carlo approach to simulate a distribution of residential occupancy periods using available data on mobility and mortality for specific population age and gender groups. The report also provides the residential duration estimates and discusses the assumptions and possible biases of the methodology.
