More people want to move but can’t find a home

WoON is a three-year survey conducted by Statistics Netherlands and the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK). The number of respondents ranged from 47,000 in 2021 to 69,000 in 2012. The survey asked adults if they would like to move in two years. In 2021, 11 percent say they definitely want to relocate, and 23 percent may want to relocate. These ratios have remained fairly stable since 2012. The group that wants to relocate but finds no more than doubles. In 2015 nearly 3 percent of respondents gave this answer, in 2021 more than 6 percent. This equates to an increase from about 400,000 people in 2015 to nearly 900,000 in 2021.
